Companies turn to automated PC turn off



New report confirms that automated energy saving systems will expand rapidly in response to increasing energy costs and environmental legislation.
New report confirms that automated energy saving systems will expand rapidly in response to increasing energy costs and environmental legislation.
The global market for PC power management technologies will continue to expand "at a pretty rapid rate" according to a new report entitled PC Power Management- Measuring, Monitoring and Managing Client Energy Consumption. The report confirms that the energy savings delivered by automated PC turn-off technologies can deliver a return on investment in less than six months for many organisations.
The study from IT industry analysts The 451 Group sustains that the major driver for companies to turn to automated energy saving systems will be increasing energy costs, and environmental legislation.
Despite the rapid expansion of the PC power management market in recent years the technology has still achieved market penetration of just 20%, leaving plenty of room for expansion.
UK's CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme urges companies to invest in automated energy saving systems
The report noted how tax rebates on PC power management systems offered by many US states was helping to drive demand, while in Europe, legislation such as the UK's CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme would increase corporate energy costs, strengthening the investment case for automated energy saving systems.
Report author Andrew Donoghue said the emergence of PC power management technologies from companies such as 1E, Verdiem, Microsoft, and IBM BigFix, represented a "real green IT success story".
Donoghue said "Companies can see returns on investment in less than six months from savings to energy bills from deploying technology that costs on average $15 per desktop," and he added that PC power management systems were likely to evolve over the next five years to incorporate other elements of energy management.
