Erik Lundquist – eWeek Government mandates to reduce carbon emissions …I hereby mandate energy conservation in all State Agencies in the Commonwealth of MA… Government mandates to reduce carbon emissions …I hereby mandate energy conservation in all State Agencies in the Commonwealth of MA… Governor Deval Patrick- Executive Order 484 Companies are under pressure for a Green Image and reduce energy costs. Companies are under pressure for a Green Image and reduce energy costs. Customers and CIOs need to get ahead of the curve here, conducting those energy audits and producing a plan to make power consumption part of the TCO for the IT infrastructure. Gartner analyst Rakesh Kumar
Power Consumption in IT Typically, IT power savings are thought of in the datacenter with virtualization. Desktop PCs consume 400-600kwh of power and are typically left on all day. With increased security concerns including patches, hot fixes, and day zero installs, PCs are left on ALL NIGHT. The amount of energy wasted x 1,000s of PCs is staggering. Price per kwh varies with the Northeast, California, and Texas areas as high as.17kwh

Cost Savings PC enters low power state after administrator set time drawing as little at 2kwh. Stays in low power when user goes home. With PCs not putting heat into office environment, companies save power on cooling costs. Companies save even more when utility companies are stretched and charge more for ‘peak’ periods. Utility companies reimburse companies for implementing software such as eiPower Saver Solution – PGE $15 per PC. http://www.pge.com/news/news_releases/q3_2007/0708 07.html http://www.pge.com/news/news_releases/q3_2007/0708 07.html http://www.pge.com/news/news_releases/q3_2007/0708 07.html
Tangible ROI $10 - $65 per PC savings annually Office cooling cost reduction Utility company rebates Given these savings, ROI can be quickly realized.
