I realize that it comes in various flavors (some are actually wind/solar powered, some purchase "Renewable Energy Certificates", etc.). I would appreciate both overview/big picture takes on the current state of "green" web hosting as well as more detailed examinations of various components and factors. I am also interested in good critiques of various kinds of "green" hosting (e.g., Renewable Energy Certificates being little more than a spin on carbon credits).
Lastly, I am very interested in innovative datacenter strategies, e.g., Midas'
dielectric oil for cooling & heat dissipation.
