Developed by dot-ORG in collaboration with Winrock International, the web-based interactive Energy Solutions Toolkit for ICT Projects helps users select the most cost-effective mix of ICT and energy systems for projects across sectors.
It provides useful information about the energy requirements of ICT equipment, energy solutions for rural ICT projects, and decision-making support tools in the form of spreadsheets as well as web-based calculation tools. You'll also find case studies from around the world and many links to other related resources on the web.
For more background information, click on the slide to the right to view the Introductory Presentation
Two Quizzes 1. How much do you know about the energy requirements of ICT equipment? Go take a quiz!
2. How much do you know about all energy solutions that are available to support ICT projects in off-grid areas and other areas that lack of reliable electricity supply? Go take a quiz!
An Interactive Learning Tool
LCD monitors consume much less energy - 50-66% less than CRT monitors.
Try this interactive learning tool based on a real project in Rwanda and see the impact of replacing CRT monitors with LCD monitors on overall energy consumption and energy costs.
