According to a study¹ released by industry analysts The 451 Group, PC power management technologies will continue to expand at a “pretty rapid rate” over the course of the next three to five years due to the strong demand driven by compelling return on investment (ROI), increasing energy prices, emerging environmental legislation, not to mention increased customer awareness of a company’s sustainable practices.
PC power management is the measuring, monitoring and managing of energy usage of a computing environment.
By accurately measuring and monitoring power usage, organisations can implement changes to power management plans and influence user behavior to minimize energy wastage of their computer fleet, thus realizing significant energy and cost savings, and in turn, reducing the organisation’s CO2 emissions.
The 451 Group report states that the current market penetration for energy management tools is only at 20% and this is expected to grow due to a rise in demand. According to the report, “companies can see returns on investment in less than six months from savings to energy bills”, making an investment in such tools a compelling argument for organizations who wish to achieve Green IT targets but also realize savings which can be re-invested into the business.
