In the computed metrics, constant values for carbon dioxide emission and cost of power and tree offset for carbon dioxide emission have been used.
The values are taken from the following links:
- CO2 emission per KWh = 0.709 Kg. Reference values from Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator
- Cost of Power = $0.108 per KWh. Based on the contiguous US average value. Reference from VMware TCO Reference Calculator .
- Tree offset for CO2 Emission = 16.511 Kg (36.4 pounds of carbon per tree). Refer to Greenhouse Gases Equivalencies Calculator which is equivalent to 36.4/2.2046 Kg of carbon per tree.
- Power consumption of a small server (1 socket, 10 cores, 32 GB RAM) = 0.1 KW (Assumption).
