CRC changes ‘will help firms use more green IT solutions’

The uptake of green IT solutions, such as virtualisation, is likely to rise as the government has decided to simplify the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.

Michiel van der Voort, director for international and professional development at BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, said the proposals "will make the scheme easier for businesses to understand and implement".

The institute is working to enable the IT industry to become more environmentally friendly, lowering its energy usage and carbon emissions.

Virtualisation is one thing which can help businesses become greener, as it allows them to place their data off-site, therefore using less energy on-site.
