In this short paper we motivate and present an approach to estimating the entire energy consumption of a web-based software system. The purpose of the estimation is to be able to document– and in the future also predict– the impact of changes to the platform on energy consumption, e.g., energy-reducing initiatives or a growth in the number of users. This investigation is a part of a preliminary project on energy certified software development and development operations; we are focusing on a single web-based IT system, which will be presented after the motivation.
