Energy saving days
green 960447 copyUTM Faculty of Computing, Malaysia
Dear all,The energy management committee of Faculty of Computing has proposed Fridays as energy saving days. By practicing one day a week, hopefully the tendency of being an energy saver will be established in all of us. There are several simple things, which can help us to reduce the amount of electricity usage during Fridays. Following are some proposed efforts and the committee would be so glad if you could share more ways of energy saving with us:

1) Set the minimum temperature of air conditioner to 24oC.

2) Increase the utilization of daylight by switching off the light in the office/lecturer’s/lecture room and lab if unnecessary.

3) Making sure that before leaving the room for Friday prayer, air conditioner, lights, and computers are turned off.

4) Turn off the lights in the corridors during bright sunny day.

Although each individual may do a very small effort, the summation of all these efforts can make a huge contribution to energy saving.

Take a look at these statistics:

  • Exterior shades can reduce air conditioning loads by up to 60%
  • 16% of all the energy used in the U.S.A. is for air conditioning and its up to 43% in the peak power load of the summer.
  • According to the U.S Dept of Energy, shade on the outside of the window is up to 7 times more effective than interior blinds or window tint.

 

7 Tips to Green Computing

Posted by on Mar 14, 2013 in Green computing ( Energy Div.), Information, Knowledge base | Comments Off on 7 Tips to Green Computing

7 Tips to Green Computing

Computing and technology is now responsible for 2% of the global carbon footprint, a significant amount for just one sector of industry. It’s therefore important that end users do whatever we can to reduce our impact on the environment. The following tips are simple things you can do to contribute that will help the whole planet as well as save you some money.

1) Power down when not in use

Seems obvious but many of us leave computers powered up for long periods when not in use. Computer displays in particular use a large amount of energy so if you’re not using the computer for a while press the power button to shut it off until required, you can do this even if the computer is working on something. Remember that a screensaver doesn’t save power. Same goes for your computer itself, you don’t have to shut it down completely if you don’t want to reboot, just use sleep or hibernation mode. That will save energy but restore the system to its current state when you need it again.

2) Make use of power saving features

All computers include power saving options. Using these features you can command your computer to perform various energy-saving tasks automatically, including shutting off unused hard disks, powering off a monitor after a certain time or even placing the computer into sleep mode after a set period inactivity. These are especially useful on laptops to help retain battery life.

3) Buy energy efficient hardware

If you don’t need super-fast computing power then look out for energy efficient components when buying a new computer, such as green hard drives and low-energy processors. While performance is slower they can use significantly less power. In particular buying an energy efficient power supply unit for a desktop PC can help the environment and save money, they’re often quieter too.

4) Use a laptop

Laptops are far better for the environment than desktop computers as they have components which require less power. If you don’t need a desktop computer consider buying a laptop instead, or if you have both use the laptop whenever possible.

5) Recycle responsibly

Computer hardware is packed with all kinds of material which can be hazardous to the environment so make sure you dispose of old components properly. Don’t just throw broken technology in the bin, take the time to track down local recycling schemes. There may be companies which can extract the valuable rare metals, or charities which may repair or restore items. You may even be able to sell some things yourself on eBay to make a little extra cash. If nothing else you should check with your local authorities to find out what facilities they offer for safely disposing of old computing equipment.

6) Go digital

Advances in technology mean our reliance on physical items has been greatly reduced. You don’t need to buy a CD when music can be legally purchased from Amazon, iTunes or many other sources. And rather than printing documents and photos make use of email and instant messaging to send documents, or gadgets such as digital photo frames to display pictures without paper.

7) Don’t buy new, upgrade and maintain

Computer running a little slow? It happens after a while, like people they get a bit sluggish in old age. However that doesn’t mean you have to buy a whole new system, simple upgrades such as extra RAM, a new hard drive or a new processor can have a major impact and give your system a new lease of life. Most laptops can be upgraded as well, not just desktop systems. It may not even need new parts, clearing out old files are reinstalling the operating system can improve performance without costing any money.

Tips For Green Computing

Tips For Green Computing

According to Gartner Research, the technology industry accounts for approximately 2% of global carbon dioxide emissions (mostly from the power generation), which is equivalent to the emissions generated by the aviation industry.

The popularity of the personal computer has no doubt had a major impact on our environment and if we all start thinking about ‘green computing’ we can collectively reduce the impact.

Whether you want to help fight global warming or just plain save money on energy, these tips for green computing can help.

  1. Activate the power saving options. Most computers have the ability to set power saving options for the monitor, the hard drive(s) and the entire system. To access the Power Options in Windows, click on the Start button, then on Control Panel and then on Power Options. To access the Energy Saver option in Mac OS X, choose System Preferences from the Apple menu, then choose Energy Saver from the View menu.
  2. Turn it off! Your display screen is the biggest power consuming device, especially if it’s one of the older CRT monitors. Today’s flat panels consume less than half the power of older CRT screens, so consider replacing if you still have an old display. Hit the display’s power button when you are going to be away from your computer for a while or if you aren’t going to be using the computer for several hours or overnight, shut the entire system down instead of letting it go to sleep.
  3. Optimize your computer’s performance. If your computer takes forever to boot up and seems to be getting slower for just about everything, not only is it aggravating, you’re wasting energy. Anything that’s running in the background is expending your computer’s resources and wasting energy at the same time. If you haven’t had your computer cleaned up in the past year or two, getting it serviced will lower your blood pressure and reduce the power consumption.
  4. If you have a laptop, use it more. Laptops by design are more efficient users of electricity, so if you own both a desktop and a laptop, use the laptop as much as you can.
  5. Get rid of the cutesy screen saver. Many improperly associate screen savers with power savers. Screen savers were designed to keep screens from “burning in” and are actually power wasters. Those cute photos of your family vacation when your screen saver kicks in cause power to be wasted by your hard drive, CPU and monitor. For the lowest power consumption, set your screen saver option to “blank” which will save your screen and power.
  6. Dispose of old technology properly. Never dispose of any electronic device by throwing it away, as the toxic waste in all electronics is substantial. Check with your municipality for local charities, schools, churches or recycling programs to donate or recycle your old electronics properly. Tips for scrubbing your personal information from an old computer before donating or recycling can be found at www.datadoctors.com/recycle.
  7. Keep it digital. The popularity of digital music downloads has reduced the number of CDs manufactured by the music industry. Using an iPod or other MP3 players instead of burning CDs reduces waste. Instead of using a fax machine, scan a document so it can be e-mailed. Businesses can setup a fax server instead of a traditional fax machine so all incoming faxes are digitized automatically and save the paper. Instead of printing out something so you can read it, read it on the screen. Instead of printing out a photo to send to someone, use one of the online photo sharing services…if you think about it, the digital options are almost endless.
