Green Computing is a recent trend towards designing, building and operating computer systems to be energy efficient. While programs such as Energy Star have been around since the early1990s, recent concerns regarding global climate change and the energy crisis have led to renewed interest in Green Computing. This activity is not just limited to saving electricity, but also takes a holistic approach towards environment-friendly use of computers. Devising innovative and environment-conscious techniques for energy generation is also one of its aspects. Opportunities lie in green technology like never before in history and organizations are seeing it as a way to create new profit centers while trying to help the environmental cause.
