Information networks account for 2% of the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere and by 2030 they will consume 20% of all the world’s electricity.
The Internet was not designed to be a broadcast network but that’s how it’s being used today. Half of its capacity during peak hours is used to stream Netflix and YouTube. Content delivery networks deploy hundreds of thousands of edge servers to handle the traffic.
Our technology does not need the servers and networks. We simply display images on TV. It takes no additional energy to broadcast data over an existing television network.
