In this white paper, we take a look at the key risks associated with the rise of information technology (IT) in terms of electricity consumption, offering a refined forecast for IT electricity consumption up to 2030. Our conclusion: while we know that the digital economy will require significantly more energy in the future – and some observers voice considerable concerns over this – we find that climate impact is likely to remain limited by progress in IT technology, as well as the rapid adoption of clean power sources by the sector.
