Greening the Internet of Things: A Comprehensive Review of Sustainable IoT Solutions from An Educational Perspective

Tuka Kareem Jebur


Green IoT, or the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to promote sustainability and reduce environmental impact, has gained increasing attention in recent years. The purpose of this paper is to increase awareness about the environmental effect of IoT and to share insights and ideas for making IoT more sustainable and contributing to a more environmentally friendly future. The paper discusses the benefits and challenges of using solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources in IoT applications, as well as the use of sensors, data analytics, and machine learning to optimize resource usage and monitor environmental conditions. The key findings of this paper indicate that Green IoT has the potential to play a significant role in addressing environmental challenges, such as climate change and resource depletion. However, there are still many challenges that need to be addressed, including the high cost of renewable energy sources and the complexity of managing large -scale IoT networks. Overall, this paper emphasizes the importance of Green IoT and the need for further research to develop more efficient and sustainable IoT solutions.
