Focus on green computing has been growing very fast. Green computing refers to supporting business critical computing needs with least possible amount of power or sustainable computing. This represents a dramatic change particularly in IT industry. The driving force behind this change comes from the ever growing business computing needs, fast growing burden of energy cost, growing awareness of global warming issues, and increasing sense of national energy security. On the fronts of global warming issues and energy security, various regulations and laws will soon be in place that will force the use of IT equipment that meet certain energy efficiency requirements. Malaysian companies and organizations are even no exception. These organizations face greater challenge as they must sustain their rapidly developing rate and should keep pace with new flow of technologies as well. This project will provide an investigating of readiness level of Malaysian companies and organizations in applying Green computing. In the data collection phase, qualitative and quantitative data collection methods are used to study the general technological trends in the IT industry and what technologies are available in the race to meet green computing requirements by Malaysian companies. Through the analysis of the data and existing case studies, this study came up with a determined level of readiness of Malaysian companies in adopting Green computing and with probable suggestions for comfortable adoption. Especially for ICT solution, project will cover some technological aspects which are related to current theme.
