Don Utz, Eric Swanson, Jayson Hamilton, John Eberhart, Joseba Calvo, Marc Cram, Mark Smith, Shizuko Carson, and Tony Grayson authored this report, published by TIA in December 2022. It delves into the rapid shift from fossil fuels to renewables like wind, solar, and hydro for global energy needs. Concurrently, the electrification of vehicles, buildings, and appliances advances. The data center and telecommunications sectors, major power consumers, play a key role in clean energy transition. TIA’s paper examines how the IT industry can navigate powering dispersed infrastructure while achieving carbon reduction goals.
