Verdiem Green IT Initiatives
PCs and monitors are the single largest contributor to IT device-related carbon emissions in the workplace, with the average PC wasting two-thirds of its consumed energy when not in use. Verdiem empowers organizations worldwide to dramatically reduce their carbon footprint and their IT energy bill with a single, simple PC power management solution. The company's software provides measurable energy and cost savings through central control of PC and monitors power settings - including comprehensive reporting and robust, customizable solutions for companies big and small.
Based in Seattle, Verdiem customers have thus far cut their carbon footprint by more than 358,000 tons of carbon emissions, while saving more than $40 million dollars on their energy bills. That's equivalent to taking more than 59,000 cars off the road, or conserving more than 31 million gallons of gasoline.
A typical PC consumes 600 kWh of electricity a year. SURVEYOR can reduce that energy consumption by up to 60% or by an average of 200 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per PC annually. In a PC-intensive organization, this typically represents a 3-6% annual reduction in total electricity consumption, saving an average of $20-$60 per PC annually. Additionally, by eliminating PC network energy waste, organizations also reduce associated CO2, greenhouse gas emissions.
SURVEYOR works by intelligently placing PCs into lower power settings when not in use. The software employs a centralized control and management approach to controlling the power settings residing within each networked computer. This maximizes energy savings without interfering with end-user productivity or desktop maintenance. SURVEYOR features comprehensive reporting capabilities to quantify savings, is easy to implement, requires minimal maintenance, and delivers payback typically in less than a year.
