Reducing emissions does more than just help organizations reduce their impact on climate change. According to Scott Tease, Vice President and General Manager for HPC and AI at Lenovo, every kilowatt that is consumed can easily approach $1,000 per year in energy costs. But, by building greener IT infrastructure or updating existing installations with the latest energy efficient hardware, businesses can save kilowatt by kilowatt bringing a positive impact to not only the environment but also the wallet. Getting there starts with taking an inventory of existing IT setups, Tease advises. “You need a baseline for your power consumption,” he says. “You also need a baseline of your CO2 emissions. Once those are understood, you can begin your journey to greener IT.”
