A Google query consumes as much energy as one hour of light.

"A single Google query consumes as much energy as an 11-watt light bulb does in one hour." (perpenduum.com).

"Electricity generation required for information and communication technologies is currently responsible for 2% of global CO2 emissions" (Techcrunch)

Thus the CO2 emission of the IT industry totalizes to even more than the emission of the whole worldwide aviation industry.

How it works?

The whole energy consumption at Znout is being measured by an independent partner - CO2stats.

They measure not only the energy consumption of hosting servers, but also the CO2 emission of the whole network infrastructure that is being used. Even the energy consumption of your own computer is being statistically determined and added to the sum.

At the end of each month renewable energy certificates (similar to carbon credits) are being bought in order to balance out the environmental footprint caused by Znout. This makes your searches become eco-friendly.

Znout finances the purchase of these CO2 certificates solely from advertising revenue. So for Znout users searching green is absolutely free.

So far more than 2,739,606 watt hours have been ‘turned green’ thanks to Znout.

Other good reasons to use Znout:

Znout is not only eco-friendly; there are many other good reasons to use Znout:

Privacy: Znout does not save any user data, search queries or IP addresses in order to protect your privacy.

Best search results: Thanks to the partnership with Google Znout can deliver you excellent search results. So "Zero negative output" is also true for the results you get at Znout.

Search plugin for browser: With the Znout search plugin you can search the web much faster than you did before.

Save energy: In the upper right corner of the starting page you can set up a black background color for Znout. This will save you up to 30% energy while you search the web.
