Thanks, Hayley.

Perhaps also useful is work on the many ways that open access networks (aka "neutral fiber,” muni or wholesale-only networks such as found in the Governor's May budget revise) promote green policies, as presented in consultant WIK’s slides:

Slides are based on WIK's study of Stockholm's municipal fiber network (https://www.stokab.se/en/stokab.html <https://www.stokab.se/en/stokab.html>).   

WIK makes the argument that the telecom network is inextricably wound up with energy, water, transportation, and other networked industries,  and that ICT (information and communication technology), primarily open fiber, is an essential part of any conservation strategy.  Their full "Green Deal" report is here: https://stokab.se/download/18.15d457b6178eff38ee02ed/1619701526100/Neutral%20fibre%20and%20the%20European%20Green%20Deal%20,%20WIK-Consult.pdf <https://stokab.se/download/18.15d457b6178eff38ee02ed/1619701526100/Neutral%20fibre%20and%20the%20European%20Green%20Deal%20,%20WIK-Consult.pdf>

Their report on the economic and technical aspects of Stokab's open access fiber network is here (which we linked in our article) is here: https://stokab.se/download/18.796da515175469f3e544f/1603888583380/The%20role%20of%20wholesale%20only%20models%20in%20future%20networks%20and%20applications_(2018),%20WIK-Consult.pdf <https://stokab.se/download/18.796da515175469f3e544f/1603888583380/The%20role%20of%20wholesale%20only%20models%20in%20future%20networks%20and%20applications_(2018),%20WIK-Consult.pdf>
