PC Power Management – Why they hate it! Part 4

In parts 1, 2 and 3 we talked about the concerns around PC power management. Now it’s time for you to be the hero in green!  Get your facilities, IT and end users on board with your PC power management initiative.  In order to do that here are 6 must-dos to increase adoption of PC power management:

  • Run accurate and ongoing reports that clearly outline the ROI on energy savings in dollars.
  • Run competitions between floors, buildings or departments on who can save the most energy.  Make power saving fun!
  • Demonstrate energy savings in terms of carbon footprint equivalences such as cars off the road, trees cut down, tons of pollution, barrels of oil or anything else that people can relate to in their daily lives.
  • Audit energy usage before implementing a power policy and get a feel for how this works in your computing environment.
  • Implement a power management policy in phases in order to get people progressively used to tighter power management actions.
  • Don’t make your PC power management policy so aggressive that it significantly interferes with the daily operations of your end users.

You’ve got the go ahead for your green initiative and you’ve instilled PC power management policy in your company.  Use these tips to get the rapid adoption from all the major stakeholders.

Like the frog said, “It ain’t easy being green!”
