10 Ways to Reduce Power Bills and Carbon Dioxide Emissions

  1. Placing PCs in hibernate mode can reduce power consumption and carbon dioxide emissions to around 50% of normal usage.

  2. Consider purchasing laptop computers. A typical laptop computer uses 40W, which is about half of a desktop computer including the monitor's energy consumption of about 100W.
  3. Installing video conferencing systems reduces travel expenses and carbon generating plane trips.
  4. Installing thin clients, which is a type of PC that contains no HDD or fans can save up to 80% less power than normal PCs.
  5. There are many organizations in Japan that accept donated PCs, printers, phone systems etc. Donating to various organizations that help developing countries to re-use equipment for people who may not have the money to buy their own products is a great way to contribute to the Green IT cause.
  6. PCs, desktops, servers etc can be chosen for the size of their carbon footprint. Criteria include power consumption, ability to be recycled, implementation of environmental management systems by the PC maker, etc.
  7. Screensavers are not energy savers; they continually use the monitor at full power. Setup “power management” to reduce power consumption.
  8. Flat screen computer monitors take up less space and also uses a lot less power -- only 1/3 of the power of conventional monitors. The larger the screen, the greater the power consumption.
  9. Look for power saving equipment that uses up to 50% less power than other office equipment.
  10. Check to see if your servers can be virtualized. Virtualization technology can consolidate 10 to 20 servers into one and reduce the amount of power consumption and carbon generating by up to 80%.
