Federal Govt Could Save $1 billion from Green IT

HP and Intel worked together to examine the amount of energy and power that the Federal government could save by adopting green data center technology. Just what does this amount to? $1 billion over 5 years.

Their Go Green Power Play report explains that by implementing various energy saving technologies, notably Dynamic Smart Cooling, Virtualization and Power Distribution Efficiencies, potential savings equate to around 40%. Cost savings for the first year alone are almost $200 million.

And cost savings aren't the only benefit. After 5 years the additional savings equate to:
  • Removing 1,459,3791 cars from the road
  • Providing 9,589,8722 text books to children
  • Recycling 2,270,1463 tons of waste in the U.S. instead of landfilling them
