Computing For HSBC, the decision to deploy 1E NightWatchman to manage power on 300,000 PCs was made jointly: by the ICT team aiming to reduce desktop total cost of ownership (TCO), and by the sustainability team so as to live up to the bank’s long-standing environmental commitments.

In 2009, including weekends, the software racked up 9,346,534 PC shutdowns, saving 7,267,865kWh of energy and $1,090,180 (£688,000) in energy costs. Thus over 3,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e) was kept from entering the atmosphere.
