Summary

Information and communication technology (ICT) has been extensively used to monitor energy use in a variety of applications. However, the use of ICT itself has led to huge increases in energy consumption. Today, we are witnessing a rise of energy costs, customer increase, more on-demand services using cloud architectures, mobile Internet, a diffusion of broadband access, and a growing number of services offered by internet service providers (ISP). Consequently, energy efficiency is quickly becoming a high-priority issue for the Internet.
