Together, we hold the key to addressing the global energy challenge.
Meeting rising demand for energy is among the world’s most urgent challenges.
Meeting rising demand for energy is among the world’s most urgent issues. With consumption expected to increase nearly 50% by 2035, energy is reshaping everything from the global economy to governmental policy, the planet’s ecosystem, and the way that millions of businesses operate and billions of people live.1
Because it affects everyone, we all have a stake in solving the energy challenge. At HP, we believe technology uniquely offers a path forward.
By making the most of the energy we use today, innovations in information and communications technology (ICT) can help consumers, enterprises, and entire industries reduce their environmental impact and save money while boosting productivity.
We launched the HP Unlocking Your Energy tour to explore these opportunities. With events in the United States, Europe, and Asia, the tour brings together industry experts and thought leaders to learn about innovative ways enterprises are using ICT to save energy, see firsthand HP energy-efficient solutions, and engage with others to advance the energy discussion.
Find out more about what will be discussed at upcoming Unlocking Your Energy events.
HP leadership driving energy innovation
We believe there are three keys to unlocking the full potential of energy: choose, consolidate, and control.
Helping our customers make the most of the energy they’re using begins with our industry-leading, energy-efficient solutions.
In the simplest terms, this means delivering a comprehensive portfolio of technology designed for the environment, and HP is the only information technology company with solutions spanning consumers to enterprises.
For example, by choosing energy-efficient technology from HP—and turning on their power settings—our customers are cutting energy use by more than half compared with products introduced just a few years ago, saving $10.4 billion in energy and more than 40 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in the first year. That’s equivalent to shutting down 10 coal-fired power plants for a year.2
As important as these and other improvements in product performance are, we’re thinking even bigger. Or rather, smaller. By adopting HP solutions, such as thin clients or Managed Print Services, which streamline redundant products or displace inefficient practices, customers are saving even more energy while getting better results.
Reducing the direct environmental impact of technology is vital, but it only hints at what is possible—or needed. By enabling anytime, anywhere access to information at a speed and scale that was once unimaginable, advancements in connectivity and cloud technology can provide deeper insight to help us make more sustainable decisions about how we use resources.
Imagine using your mobile device to interact with a real-time snapshot of your home’s energy consumption—down to individual rooms and appliances. Or giving companies an integrated view of energy across their entire enterprise and the tools to actively manage their consumption. HP is delivering these types of innovative solutions today, with more on the way.
The path forward
This is just the beginning. We see countless opportunities to harness ICT for sustainable transformation across the home, office, and enterprise. Connected to the cloud and armed with on-demand information, we can make the best decisions to reduce our energy and resource use, save money, and fully realize the promise of technology.
² Methodology—Technology Refresh: We’ve compared the energy consumption of comparable HP products in 2005 with our latest models for each category of products. Even with conservative assumptions, you can see that the savings are notable. Estimations of the energy consumption of 2005 products were done by using worldwide IDC shipped volumes, HP products, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program (www.energystar.gov) product averages, and the typical energy consumption (TEC) method. The energy costs are based on U.S. Department of Energy data (www.eia.doe.gov), and actual results may vary. We used the following products for this analysis: HP Deskjet 3050, HP LaserJet CP1215, HP LaserJet CP1025, HP Compaq 8200 Elite, HP Compaq 2310, HP Compaq 8000f Elite, HP Compaq LE19 monitor, HP Storage EVA, HP ProBook 6550b, HP G60t Series Notebook, HP TouchSmart610 PC, HP ProLiant DL380 G4 and G6 servers, and the HP ProLiant DL360 G7 server.
