PC turn off specialist bolsters carbon assessment tool

PC turn off software specialist Living Life Green yesterday announced plans to enhance the reporting functionality of its CarbonWise energy management suite, so that collected carbon emission reduction data can be used to help firms qualify for future green tax breaks or incentives.

The company said it will integrate standards-based carbon emission tracking software from AMEE into its CarbonWise package, which measures the energy use of PC networks and enables firms to automatically turn off computers that are not in use.

"This will ensure that in addition to substantial reductions in IT energy usage and increased IT efficiency, CarbonWise will report accurate, government approved CO2 emissions, enabling organisations to benefit from potential future green tax breaks and incentives," the company said in a statement.

CarbonWise is installed on a firm's server, breaks down power usage for individual PCs across the network and then displays it on a dashboard or in audit form.

The partnership with AMEE comes just a week after Living Life Green announced the opening of its first US office in response to high demand for its CarbonWise product from North America.

The company claims the product can save up to 60 per cent on PC energy costs, providing a return on investment in as little as three months.

Living Life Green is funded by Talsey Media Investments, a private investment company set up to take carbon friendly IT and technology solutions to market.
