e-Government National Awards
12 March 2010
Imperial was named one of the five finalists in the Sustainable, Green IT category of the e-Government National Awards at a ceremony held at London’s Guildhall on 20 January. The awards recognise excellence across 11 categories, highlighting the UK’s top public sector innovators in the use of technology. The application, by the College’s ICT Division, focused on the implementation of a carbon dioxide-based efficient high-performance computing cooling system that has been in use since 2006 and which has helped the College reduce its carbon emissions by 800 tonnes.
