David Blades made this Freedom of Information request to NHS Education for Scotland

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
