Sustainability is a growing concern across industries spurred by "green" legislative initiatives, investor preferences, and consumer demand for environmentally friendly products. With its ability to handle complex tasks more efficiently than traditional methods, artificial intelligence (AI) holds enormous promise for helping organizations improve their sustainability efforts. But at the same, the energy required to train and run AI models is growing rapidly, causing concern among organizations hoping to use the technology to drive energy use down.

Opportunities for Sustainable AI Across Industries
AI has become impossible to ignore over recent years thanks to technological advancements that have made its applications increasingly accessible. AI's potential for automating routine tasks and streamlining business processes could benefit virtually any organization aiming to optimize efficiency, mitigate risks, and identify areas for operational improvement. For technology innovators looking to grow their business, there are a variety of AI use cases to focus on and industries to serve, just a few of which are highlighted below:
- In the energy sector, AI can optimize demand forecasting with powerful analytics that can improve the accuracy of severe weather warnings, thus optimizing energy production and reducing emissions.
- In transportation, logistics companies can use AI to provide streamlined routes that reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Electric vehicle manufacturers can optimize the battery life in their cars with the help of AI algorithms.
- Agricultural firms can use AI to analyze data from farms to determine when more water or fertilizer is needed for their crops, helping ensure water doesn't go to waste and that certain chemicals aren't overused.
- Construction is also at the cutting edge of AI innovation, with applications that can assist with optimizing energy usage within buildings based on occupancy and environmental conditions that are analyzed in real-time by AI algorithms.
With abundant opportunities across many industries, software developers who can deliver high-performance solutions while demonstrating a commitment to improving sustainability and making AI more sustainable have enormous growth potential. UNICOM Engineering has years of experience helping AI innovators do just that.

Technology Partnerships to Reduce AI Energy Consumption
Running your AI technology on the proper hardware is critical for effectiveness and sustainability. Fortunately, the close partnership between UNICOM Engineering and Dell Technologies ensures our customers have access to the latest energy-efficient platforms to suit the needs of any AI solution.
Dell Technologies' commitment to sustainability is evidenced by its continued innovations in reducing energy consumption and emissions across its product lines.
For example, Dell Technologies is continually working to increase the efficiency of its PowerEdge servers. Since 2013, PowerEdge servers have become 83% more energy efficient, according to the company's internal analysis in June 2022. What required six servers a decade ago can now be accomplished with just a single server today.
Dell Technologies' storage solutions have also become increasingly energy efficient over the years. The latest Dell PowerMax delivers 80% power savings per TB compared with the previous generation , and Dell PowerStore 3.0 delivers up to 60% more IOPS per watt . Multiple PowerEdge server models have also achieved EPEAT-registered product status due to their adherence to strict environmental criteria .
