HP Cuts Computer Energy Use by 50 Percent

Computer manufacturing giant Hewlett-Packard announced earlier this month that the company was exceeding expectations in its plan to help consumers and businesses save electricity and save money off monthly bills by reducing the energy used by the desktops, laptops, and printers that the company makes.

The company said that over the last five years, it had reduced the energy its computers and printers need to operate by 50 percent. The news announced in New York during the first leg of the HP Unlocking Your Energy tour, a program advocating the company’s energy efficiency initiatives, meant that the company had not only surpassed its energy efficiency goal but did so nine months ahead of schedule.

“We set a goal to reduce the energy consumption of our products by 40 percent by the end of 2011 from 2005 levels,” said Engelina Jaspers, HP vice president of Environmental Sustainability. “I’m pleased to report we’ve exceeded this goal, and that HP products today are, on average, more than 50 percent more energy efficient than they were five years ago.”

HP said that if all makes and models of desktop and laptop computers and printers that the company shipped in 2005 were recycled and replaced with new energy-efficient models, residential and business customers, could save about $10.4 billion in combined energy costs and prevent more than 40 million metric tons of CO2 emissions within the space of one year.
