ABSTRACT
The article discusses the relevance of computing and data center activities to the European Union's carbon trading scheme. The trend toward cloud computing partly accounted for the growing proportion of greenhouse gas emissions and to an estimated 3 percent of British energy consumption. These centers have their own back-up fossil fuel power plants. Some of these sites are large enough to be direct carbon dioxide emitters. The BBC Media Village is considered the largest emitter.
