The dark side of Internet of Things, FBI and China, and other government disappointments [Government IT Week]
Europol has finally figured out something I wrote about four years ago, the FBI seems to be taking the NSA's place in the "keep quiet and shut up" department, and no one is listening to the White House about data center energy efficiency (or much of anything else, it seems). It's another week in that slapstick world we call government.
Google is offering $1 million for you to come up with a compact solution for transforming renewable energy sources into something usable at home.
The vessels will help cut energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions of small fishing farms, and will cost only one-tenth of operation costs of fuel-powered ships.
The latest round of funding focused on a Texas farm puts the Internet giant's investment in renewable energy projects at more than $1 billion.
The search and Internet services giant is putting $75 million behind a 50-megawatt wind farm in Iowa.

Cisco expands its board by two places and includes Salesforce chief executive Marc Benioff in one of the vacancies, and a green energy advocate. Sounds like a match made in heaven.
The university has deployed approximately 1 megawatt of capacity in containers, a move that could help it save $50,000 in energy costs per month of its legacy design.
Large Hadron Collider steward CERN is joining forces with the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council to help small businesses turn high-energy physics technology into commercial products.The Large Hadron Collider is one of the high-energy physics facilities run by CERN.
Scientists in the US have demonstrated a new technique for generating photons for use in optical quantum information processing: using a laser to excite a single photon from a cloud of rubidium gas.The technique, developed at the Georgia Institute of Technology Research, exploits the properties of an atom in which one or more electrons has been excited near ionisation energy levels, the so-called Rydberg state.
Facebook has opened its second US data center, in Forest City, North Carolina. The first one is in Prineville, Oregon. Both are touted by the company as among the most energy efficient in the world.
On one hand, enterprises today face a great challenge to be energy efficient with particular regard to the network infrastructure. Yet on the other hand, there is an established trend coming in of the need to support multi-media collaboration for an increasingly mobile workforce.
Google has made one last renewable energy investment in 2011: $94 million towards solar power plants in Sacramento, California.
The Ricoh Women's British Open is one of the four Majors in Women's Golf, and the only Major played outside of the USA. Steeped in history, with a winners list that reads like a 'who's who' of women's golf. Ricoh aimed for a low carbon footprint at the tournament in all areas of document production. All of the printers used for the event were set for high energy efficiency, and members of the media were instructed to minimize printing whenever possible.
Two of the biggest forces in technology are leveraging their market positions to target what has become one of the sexiest distractions for leading high-tech players: building energy management. The reason this area has so much attention is that some figures imply that buildings could suck up as much as 42 percent of energy usage worldwide.
One of the best ways to tell if a green IT services firm really has what it takes to handle your company's carbon and energy management strategy is to look at what that company is doing internally to manage its own corporate sustainability metrics. That's the spirit of a new report from independent analyst firm Verdantix, which has just released a Carbon Strategy Benchmark that looks at the strategies of 14 different enterprise technology services firms.
Lot of intelligent and energy efficient technology news out of Philadelphia last week, the location for the annual LIGHTFAIR International show. Since this continues to be one of the least intrusive ways that many companies -- consumers -- are reducing their energy consumption, here are a few quick highlights of new technologies that got some attention during the conference.
One of the smart grid technology players that you may have heard less about is smart meter maker Landis+Gyr. Which is surprising, because this is a big smart meter company -- with more than 8,000 utility customers -- and is apparently the North American leader in smart meter shipments (according to IDC Energy Insights).
I've written often about the energy and carbon management software marketplace, and the potential for consolidation that exists as more businesses start including this in their operations mix. One big player, TRIRIGA, has already been snapped up by IBM, a deal that recently closed.
