Title : Energy and environment R&D toward reducing environmental impact: Green R&D Activities in NTT
Time : Feb. 8, 2010, 16:40 ~ 18:00
Speaker : Dr. Morito Matsuoka (Executive Director, NTT Energy and Environment Systems Laboratories)
He received the B.E., M.E. and D.Eng. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, in 1980, 1982, and 1985, respectively. He joined NTT Electrical Communications Research Laboratories in 1985. Since 2004, he was a Vice President of Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR) in Kyoto for 3 years. He moved to NTT Energy and Environment Systems Laboratories in 2009. His research in NTT has been concerned mainly with thin film processes, photonic communication systems, and environmental technology. He is a member of the IEEE, the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE), and the Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP).

Abstract : This year is the beginning of the first commitment period of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. The ratifying countries including Japan have begun initiatives to achieve their reduction goals. Activity with other efforts to reduce global warming, such as discussion of post-Kyoto protocols like COP15, is also increasing. These reflect the increasing concern for the global environment in society, and the demand for companies to consider environmental issues when managing their operations. Moreover, with developments such as the announcement of the "New Energy Deal" policy in the USA, there is an expectation of new R&D and market expansion opportunities for environment and energy-related technology. In Japan, various other initiatives related to environmental issues are also proceeding, including promotion of the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) based on the Ministry of the Environments "Basic Act for Establishing a Sound Material-Cycle Society," established in 2000. In order to solve the current environmental problems, and also to advance the contribution of the NTT Group for reducing environmental impact, we are strongly promoting the energy and environment (Green) R&D. In this presentation, the speaker introduces two perspectives of the relationship between information and communications technology (ICT) and the environment, which we call "Green of ICT" and "Green by ICT". The Green R&D activities developed in NTT are also introduced.

Title : Green ICT in Korea
Time : Feb. 8, 2010, 16:40 ~ 18:00
Speaker : Dr. Kwangsu KIM (Director, Green ICT & Technology Policy Division, Korea Communications Commission)
He graduated in Electric Engineering from Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea, in 1994 and received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, USA, in 2007. He passed the 29th Higher Civil Service Examination in April 1994. Dr. Kim served as a Deputy Director of Information Planning Office in November 1997, a Deputy Director of Information Technology Policy Bureau in February 2002, and a Director of Frequency Planning Division in December 2007, in the Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC), Korea. He has consecutively filled various government posts, a Director of Director of Planning Team of OECD Ministerial Meeting in April 2008, and a Head of Daejeon Regional Radio Management Office in July 2008, in the Korea Communications Commission (KCC), Korea. He has served as a Director of Green ICT & Technology Policy Division in the KCC, Korea since February 2009.

Abstract : Climate change has become a common interest of people around the world. From the early 1990s to the early 2000s, global average temperature rose by 0.74 degrees while average temperature increased 1.7 degrees in Korea. Against this backdrop, the speaker will present about seriousness of climate change and energy crisis in Korea and the Korean government’s counter-strategies. The presentation will be followed by the necessity of green ICT and direction of green ICT policies by KCC (Korea Communications Commission) in detail. Korea is an infrastructure powerhouse. Various remote services using the infrastructure such as telecommuting, video conference, remote medical services, and remote education can reduce transportation traffic, ultimately cutting CO2 emissions. In addition, monitoring system of environmental changes and disaster response system can lower economic and social costs incurred by environmental disasters. As for national smart grid initiative as well, broadcasting and communication infrastructure and services are expected to be used actively. The presentation will be wrapped up with positive benefits expected from green ICT policies.
