Enterprise PCs work while they sleep - saving energy and money - with new software - 0 views

    "Personal computers in enterprise environments save energy and money by "sleep-working," thanks to new software called SleepServer created by computer scientists from the University of California, San Diego.

    Sleep-working enterprise PCs are accessible via remote connections and maintain their presence on voice over IP, instant messaging, and peer-to-peer networks even though the PCs are in low-power sleep mode. SleepServer can reduce energy consumption on enterprise PCs previously running 24/7 by an average of 60 percent, according to a new peer-reviewed study presented by UC San Diego computer scientists on June 24 at the 2010 USENIX Annual Technical Conference in Boston.

Idle computing costs UK firms £300 million a year - 0 views

    The bad news: organisations in the UK are wasting as much as £300 million a year by keeping idle computers switched on at night, according to a report conducted by Harris Interactive® on behalf of 1E and the Alliance to Save Energy.

    The good news: British organisations are much better at conserving computer energy than are their counterparts in the US.

    Concerns about the environment inspire 27 percent of UK workers to power down their computers at the end of the workday, according to the report. In the US, only 10 percent cited such concerns.

    If all the 17 million computer-using workers in the UK would power down at night, they could reduce the nation's yearly carbon dioxide emissions by about 1.3 million tonnes - about as much as is produced by 245,000 cars.

  • Last Monday, as I was saying, they take their first decision. Being as it was a premiere, we wanted to make it big. We proposed strong measures of energy efficiency for Standby functions and Off Mode losses.

ScienceDirect - The Electricity Journal : The Power of 5 Percent - 0 views

  • Even a 5 percent drop in peak demand can yield substantial savings in generation, transmission, and distribution costs – enough to eliminate the need for installing and running some 625 infrequently used peaking power plants and associated power delivery infrastructure.
    So reduction in standby power is likely to lower the peak.
