Nathaniel Horner and Inês Azevedo, with Arman Shehabi of LBNL, reviewed dozens of studies on the “indirect” energy effects of information and communication technology (ICT) services like e-commerce and telework.  Though ICT has compelling energy savings potential, uncertainty in implementation details and higher-order effects make the actual net energy effect hard to calculate.
