Save Money and the Environment by Reducing Computer Power Consumption by 50 Percent

Press Release


Troia – July 1st 2010 – Living Portugal Property today announced that it has joined the Climate Savers Computing Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing computer power consumption by 50 percent by the year 2010. Together, Living Portugal Property and the other industry-leading members of the Initiative will work to increase the adoption of energy-efficient PCs and servers and increase awareness and use of computer power management.

“Living Portugal Property is committed to reducing the energy consumption of information technology, both through actions, as well as driving awareness and development of energy-efficient technologies among customers. By working with Climate Savers Computing, Living Portugal Property is helping lead the movement toward a more clean and sustainable future,” said Ronald Wayne.

“By participating in the Climate Savers Computing Initiative, Living Portugal Property is demonstrating a meaningful commitment to furthering the adoption of energy-efficient technology and IT practices,” Pat Tiernan, executive director of Climate Savers Computing Initiative. “Living Portugal Property’s leadership paves the way for other companies and individuals and together we can dramatically reduce global CO2 emissions from the operation of computers.”

As a member of Climate Savers Computing, Living Portugal Property is committed to reducing energy consumption from a majority of its computing equipment by:

  • Pledging to purchase high-efficiency computer equipment that meets or exceeds Energy Star ratings
  • Optimizing existing computer systems to use power management capabilities, such as hibernation and sleep modes
  • Ensuring in subsequent years the company purchases computing equipment with increasing levels of efficiency

In a typical desktop PC, nearly half the power coming from the outlet never reaches the processor, memory, disks or any other computing components. The wasted electricity is dispersed as heat and increases the cost of powering a computer, as well as the emission of greenhouse gases. In offices, homes and data centres, the added heat from inefficient computers can increase the demand on air conditioners and cooling systems, making the computing equipment even more expensive to run. Servers are more efficient than desktops, but still typically waste 30 to 40 percent of the input power.
