IT Power Management: LSU Overview

Campus Sustainability logo

General Information

LSU is pleased to announce an exciting new undertaking that will significantly lower our energy usage. Recently, we completed a highly successful test of innovative software that drastically reduces the amount of energy used by our computers. The software manages the individual PC power settings based on criteria we set specifically for our campus. Automatically, the software manages this defined power plan.

Our test of the software resulted in savings of $20 per computer. Expanding the program to the 6,000 machines that are on the LSU domain will result in reduced energy usage and increased energy savings. We expect a three year savings of up to $350,000, reducing carbon emissions equivalent to taking more than 1,620 cars off the road.

Background Information

We want to do our part to reduce carbon emissions while significantly reducing operating expenses.
