The Green IT Economic Summit 2010, taking place symbolically on Earth Day, April 22, in Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner, Virginia, will assemble the topmost specialists from Microsoft, IBM, SRA, Symantec, Panduit, HP, Raritan, Comscore, and research and advocacy organizations.

Green computing is making headlines as Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell recognizes the contribution of a pioneering group, Ecomnets, in creating jobs in Virginia with a manufacturing operation. Ecomnets is also sponsoring a major national conference in the capital region on Green IT as the centerpiece of all green initiatives.

“We are in a new era,” said Ecomnets CEO, Raj Kosuri, “what Tom Friedman calls the Green Era. If you don’t pay attention to green, you just can’t be sustainable.” Heading an organization that has swiftly logged Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 ranking, he plans to sponsor the Green IT Economic Summit every year to bring together the best minds of the country.

The Green IT Economic Summit 2010, taking place symbolically on Earth Day, April 22, in Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner, Virginia, will assemble the topmost specialists from Microsoft, IBM, SRA, Symantec, Panduit, HP, Raritan, Comscore, and research and advocacy organizations. The central message is that green computing is needed now, not just for social accountability but also for organizational economy and profitability.

“For too long,” said Conference Chairman, Teresa Moraska, Warrior Communications, “have we thought that of Green IT as an option or a bonus. Most now realize that it is a critical organizational priority and a desperate national need.” The conference is bringing in major venture capital and advisory groups like eTrios and Techvision21 and Emerald Technology Ventures of Canada to give a realistic edge to emerging green ventures.

The conference expects 200 senior business and technology leaders from across the nation and hopes the event will spur urgently needed innovations in the US industry and government.
