Quantum technologies need a quantum energy initiative

Quantum technologies are currently the object of high expectations from governments and private companies, as they hold the promise to shape safer and faster ways to exchange and treat information. However, despite its major potential impact for industry and society, the question of their energetic footprint has remained in a blind spot of current deployment strategies. In this talk, i will present why quantum technologies must urgently plan for the creation and structuration of a transverse quantum energy initiative, connecting quantum thermodynamicists, computer scientists, experimenters and engineers. Such initiative is the only path towards sustainable quantum technologies, help reducing the cost of classical information processing, and possibly bring out an energetic quantum advantage.
