Climate Savers Computing

In response to my request for ideas on "Improving the energy efficiency of PCs and monitors in Australia" Sean Casey, Business Development Manager, Intel Customer Solutions Group sent me details of the Climate Savers Computing Initiative.

The initiative has major ICT companies as members. They aim to reduce computer power 50% by 2010 and have a catalogue of energy saving ICT products. They provide a three step energy saving process:
  1. Turn on Power Management,
  2. Buy Energy-Efficient Computers (Energy Star Complaint)
  3. Unplug from Phantom Power (disconnecting equipment which draws standby power when supposedly "off").
