Intel Corporation and Google have joined with more than a dozen additional organisations today announcing their...
intent to form the Climate Savers Computing Initiative.
The goal of the broad-based environmental effort is to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by setting aggressive targets for energy-efficient computers and components, and promoting the adoption of energy-efficient computers and power management tools worldwide.
"Today, the average desktop PC wastes nearly half of its power, and the average server wastes one-third of its power," said Urs Holzle, senior vice president, Operations, Google Inc. "The Climate Savers Computing Initiative is setting a new 90% efficiency target for power supplies, which if achieved, will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 54 million tons per year - and save more than $5.5 billion in energy costs."
