Anyone has some credible sources on the energy expenditure of data transfer?
This article states 5 kWh per transferred GB: https://www.emergeinteractive.com/insights/detail/does-irresponsible-web-development-contribute-to-global-warming/
It seems so... high? It would mean watching an episode of House of Cards is as bad as driving 70 km in a gasoline car?
@danny I'm guessing the hour long stream of House of Cards is improving the global GB/KWh, unless it's via satellite phone, for an outdoor cinema projector, operating on a cruise ship
@danny there is no way. That cost would be passed down to the user somehow...
That is almost $2 per GB in Danish power prices.
@rune Right? I’ll do some more digging today.
