The authors of this study examine the potential impacts of Information & Communication Technology (ICT) on energy efficiency and the electrical grid in Europe, considering a 2005-2020 outlook. Projections are made using three scenarios: a baseline trend informed by literature, a "business-as-usual" case in which current trends are static, and an "eco-scenario" wherein there is a push to deploy ICT-based energy efficiency technologies.
