CeBit to host Green Hall

Tuesday, March 2–Saturday, March 6
Venue: Hannover Fairgrounds; Hannover, Germany
Website: www.cebit.com

 From a press release:
"Green IT (Hall 8)
CeBIT Green IT is comprised of three thematic areas, two that focus on business and one that spotlights the consumer market. "Smart Infrastructure" is dedicated to energy- and resource-conservation, with subcategories such as virtualization, cooling, server-based computing, and intelligent outsourcing. "Green IT meets Business" looks at how IT can sustain cost-cutting measures by optimizing processes and improving energy efficiency. Examples will include zero-watt screens, resourceconserving output devices, and user-friendly mobile devices. "Green IT @ Home" addresses energy conservation at home, using PCs, notebooks and screens as examples. CeBIT Green IT will also feature a forum with highcaliber speakers from industry, science and government. More information is available at www.cebit.de/greenit_e"

Analysis: I've been skeptical about how much greener a document imaging operation really makes an organization, because of all the computing power used to access documents, but when you combine imaging with some of the innovations mentioned here like "zero-watt screens," maybe we're onto something.
