The request was successful.

Dear Sirs

In the press this weekend it was announced that SEPA had been leaving 400 PC's on overnight, wasting around 90,000 kwh per year, the equivalent of 280 hours of flying a jet plane. In order to combat this they have now introduced a Power Management software product. As you are a Public Sector body in Scotland I would like to know;

How many PC's do you have in your organization?
Do you use a Power Management software product (not the operating system: this is inefficient)?
Contact details for the person responsible for Green issues / carbon reduction commitments?

Many thanks,

David Blades

Dear Mr Blades

Thank you for your request received on 6 June 2011 for the following
information:

How many PC's do you have in your organization?
NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde has 25,000 PCs.

Do you use a Power Management software product (not the operating system:
this is inefficient)?
Following extensive piloting in 2010/11 and reviewing the business
benefits, a desktop power management product has been purchased and will
be rolled out to 10,500 PCs within the organisation. This will then be
reviewed but as we are a 24/7 organisation with some devices in constant
use, it is not planned to deploy this to all PCs.

reduction commitments?
