AbstractA museum is a cultural entity whose aim is to conserve, organize, study and research as well as give access to precious tangible and intangible heritage assets of society. The online museums will be realised through the combined use of design, information technology, computing resources, and community collaboration. Through the next generation museums it is also possible to improve our use of energy resources, by focusing on sustainability and allowing us to research and analyse the relationship between the digitisation of cultural heritage and energy consumption. The key target of this thesis is to understand the energy consumption of certain museums derived acts such as digitisation, long term preservation and media exhibits. Furthermore the results of a survey collecting the view of 3 museums in Finland about green ICT and museums is presented.
