Abstract: This presentation provides an overview of recent work undertaken at the Centre for Energy Efficient Telecommunications (CEET) based at the University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. CEET has modelled the energy consumption of a range of popular Internet services including; Wireless access to cloud services, interactive cloud services, photo sharing via the cloud, cloud data storage and access technologies for Internet of Things. CEET has also investigated the re-bound effect of ubiquitous nationwide broadband. CEET was a significant contributor to the GreenTouch energy efficiency technology roadmap. This presentation will provide a brief summary of the outcomes of this work and a brief outlook of future energy consumption of Internet services.

Kerry Hinton received a BE(Hons) in 1978 from the University of Adelaide and a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1984. In 1984 he joined the Telstra Research Laboratories working on modelling of optical systems and components. In 2006, He joined the University of Melbourne, in the Centre for Ultra-Broadband Information Networks. In 2011 he joined the Centre for Energy Efficient Telecommunications (CEET) researching the energy efficiency of the Internet. He is now Director of the CEET.
