Processes for Green and Sustainable Software Engineering

Abstract

Within research in the context of ‘Green (in) IT’ (ways to make ICT itself greener) and ‘Green by IT’ (possibilities to encourage environmental-friendly movements by ICT), it turned out that, next to the hardware aspects, the software side also gains big importance. Software causes hardware activity and is responsible for energy consumption in that way. It became an important aspect of the daily life, and most people cannot imagine future development without software.
