we combined data from
sp3r4z.fr/mastodon & thegreenwebfoundation.org

the result is a list for the with a daily update! the list shows: hostname/instance, location/country, hosting-provider/company and the greencheck by the green web foundation (green or grey)

the list:
greenfediverse.frama.io/green-

ideas and participation welcome!
the script can be found here: framagit.org/greenfediverse


Is anyone here willing to invest some time to set up a IP geolocation and ASN lookup service for our Database?
See toot and git:

❔ Who can help?

"... as a first step, we should find a way to determine the location and hosting provider of all instances. This would help immensely in making an own judgement about the "greenness" of an instance. Unfortunately, API-access to geolocation and ASN information is usually only commercially available."

#FollowFriday / #FF recap of this week's recommended follows:

🌟 @olimex - Manufacturers of open source hardware and devices

🌟 @LimeSurvey - Free open source alternative to Google Forms

🌟 @ubuntustudio - Linux distro aimed at creative people

🌟 @karrot - FOSS platform for sharing resources in real life (e.g. food sharing)

🌟 @greenfediverse - Directory of Fediverse instances which use renewable energy

🌟 @tuxedocomputers - Building customised laptops and desktops with Linux preinstalled

GreenFediverse is a directory of Fediverse instances with information on how environmentally friendly they are. You can follow the project here:

@greenfediverse

You can see the directory at greenfediverse.frama.io/green-

The project uses data from the Green Web Foundation, and is mainly based on whether the instance's hosting provider uses renewable energy.

List is working again!
The new list now works with fem.social
and will update weekly. Thanks to @clerie!
We also talked about a reject-list, which we directly integrated. Google, Cloudflare and Amazon servers are now on this list, also with further explanation for those who are interested. Thanks goes to @aktivismoEstasMiaLuo for the critical input!
The classification is still coming from
the Green Web Foundation!
Take a look:

this project from 2018 is very interesting. it's a visualization of the mastodon hashtag network.
lucahammer.at/vis/fediverse/20
a green fediverse instances visualization could also look very nice!
if someone is searching for a new project, it's just an idea.

The instances list on masto.dryusdan.fr/ which we used for our updating list isn't available any longer.
Is there an alternative list of Masto instances?

Hey, unser erstes, schwaches tooten im fediverse! Wir sind die Klima Aktion Thüringen und finden uns hier noch etwas zurecht. Und freuen uns über accountvorschläge zum folgen :) toot tooot

in december we made a simple calculation.
there were 1027, 33,44% instances using servers with renewable energy.
today, there are 972 green instances, means 36,5% of all listed.

keep in mind: it's just a unprecise dataset and there are still big grey instances which move the total consumption results towards grey - so it's less than 36,5%.

by the way: the next month we will work on the list and modify the script to get better and more critical results. this will be a challenge!

There is a by , means another database which could be very interesting for our project.
Sadly we need to register to use this database, means it's not as we wish.
The search engine uses this to show us a small icon that shows websites that support companies.
They also use other organizations to label websites, but there are less information available on these databases.
