ICT sector to lead the way on climate and energy targets, says European Commission

The European Commission has called on Europe's ICT industry to outline by 2011 the practical steps it will take to become 20% more energy efficient by 2015.

The Commission also asks EU countries to agree on common specifications for smart metering by the end of 2010. For more click here.
