Abstract: Energy generation and consumption dominate public awareness of global ecological impact. Ecologically responsible design and application of electronic systems rehabilitate perceptions of technology from wasteful and insensitive to conservative, green, and ecologically sound. Even more important than changing perceptions, electronics hold the potential to alleviate energy scarcity with minimal ecological impact.

This paper presents examples drawn from electronics manufacturing, alternative energy production and distribution, LED lighting, and hybrid and electric vehicles illustrating opportunities to enhance the image (and marketability) of the electronics industry and ways to substantially improve the ecological impact of energy consumption and usage.

Key words: alternative energy, energy consumption, ecological impact.
