HP Helps Businesses Reduce PC Energy Consumption with New Desktop
The HP Compaq dc5800 Business PC provides power and flexibility as well as a variety of environmental features that allows it to meet the most stringent environmental requirements of the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT™) Gold registry.
HP currently tops the industry in the number of Gold-listed products in the EPEAT registry, which helps businesses evaluate, compare and select technology products based on their environmental attributes, such as meeting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s latest ENERGY STARTM energy efficiency requirements.
While using more power efficient PCs can help any business save on energy costs and reduce the environmental impact of their technology, the effect across an enterprise environment can be immense. For example, the recent IDC Go Green PC Power Play Study
found that the U.S. Federal government could save more than $82.4 million dollars in energy costs(1)
and equivalent to conserving more than 1.3 million barrels of oil in just one year(2)
if its more than10 million existing ENERGYSTAR 3.0 PCs were updated to the new 4.0 standard.(3)
The research study was underwritten by HP to help quantify the savings opportunities energy-efficient PCs could provide the Federal government.
“HP’s ongoing efforts to design for the environment has spanned decades,” said Charl Snyman, vice president and general manager, Commercial Products, Personal Systems Group, HP EMEA. “HP leverages the expertise built from this long-standing commitment to continually develop smart ideas for its desktop and other product lines that can help business customers not only be more productive, but also reduce both operating costs and their affect on the environment.”
