Summary. In current society it is becoming more and more important to take energy efficiency considerations into account when designing information and communication technology (ICT) solutions. In ICT, virtualisation is being regarded as a way to increase energy efficiency. One such virtualization solution which can be realized trough grids or cloud computing is the thin client paradigm. This paper analyses the energy saving opportunities of the thin client paradigm.
