5 Steps to Implementing an Enterprise-wide PC Power Management Solution


If you are looking at saving money and reducing the CO2 emissions of your organization, PC power management is a good place to start. Your IT energy consumption will have increased greatly over the last few years and PCs and laptops are reckoned to make up 39% of all IT energy consumption.

So, savings in this area can be pretty substantial and worth investigating. Furthermore, unlike many other energy saving initiatives, reducing PC energy consumption can provide an ROI within months rather than years – with the right tool.

Don’t expect users to change their behaviour

Having made the decision to focus on energy savings with your PC and laptop estate you might be tempted to think that you can achieve this by persuading your users to change their behaviour voluntarily. This takes a lot of work and although you may get some initial success in persuading people to turn off their PCs when they go home, over time many will resort back to their original behaviour, negating any original savings.
