ZEP.us servers are AWS servers which are 3.6 times more energy efficient than traditional web servers. Due to the nature of the ZEP Spaces, it is difficult to estimate the CO2 consumption of an individual space. Depending on the usage and size of the space, number of users, etc., COs consumption may vary. ZEP.us is designed to make the tool and servers work efficiently, so consumption is comparable to a regular website or video call.
With a digital event you offer your participants the opportunity to take part in your event cost-effectively, energy-efficiently and regardless of location, you save time, budget and above all CO2.
