Today in Cleantech

Add Dell to the list of corporations that are realizing big energy savings thanks to PC power management software. By installing 1E’s NightWatchman and SMSWakeUp (now 1E WakeUp) on 50,000 desktops and notebooks, the computing giant says that it is saving an estimated $1.8 million a year. Need more proof that managing PC energy consumption is becoming vital to IT operations? Consider this: 1E occupies the very first bullet point in Dell’s green-tinted press release, above the company’s own server consolidation and virtualization efforts.
