Rules for the near real-time calculation of pollutant emissions allocated to the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure (servers, network, etc.) are specified in this standard. Emissions in this standard are defined as gaseous and particle emissions caused by the generation of electricity consumed during the ICT infrastructure use phase.

Standard for a method for calculating anticipated emissions caused by virtual machine migration and placement
This standard specifies rules to calculate anticipated emissions caused by virtual machine (VM) migration and placement in geographically distributed locations supplied by different electricity sources. The method specified in this standard is used to determine anticipated marginal emissions from the electric grid due to the adaptation of its power generation capacity in response to an extra power demand from the server receiving the VM and the network supporting the migration of the VM. This standard provides a method to assess anticipated gaseous (including Greenhouse Gases) and particle emissions caused by VM migration and placement in distributed servers located in different regions.
Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.
No Active Standards
These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.
No Superseded Standards
These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.
No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards
These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.
No Inactive-Reserved Standards
