Studies show that about 25% of your energy consumption is used by office equipment, and data centers use up to 100 times as much energy as a typical classroom or office. These facts in conjunction with environmental concerns are fueling a keen interest in “going green” among districts and schools. This EdTech Next report focuses on energy-efficient and environmentally friendly management of every aspect of technology, from intelligent procurement to thoughtful operations to responsible disposal.
