Dear friends,


Energy cost will massively grow within this and next decade because of
decreasing oil and gas supply and rapidly growing electricity demand.
For the time from 2008 until 2030 the electricity comsumption growth
of all our ICT infrastructures has been predicted by a factor of 30
--- if current trends continue. Also the price per kWh will probably grow
by another factor, so that the electricity cost to run our ICT 
infrastructures
may grow by a factor of 100 or even more during this period of time.


We need your ideas on how to cope with this challenge by current trends.


These problems are also subject of PATMOS 2013: http://fpl.org/CFP7/

Best regards,
Reiner Hartenstein
