HP cutting computer energy consumption by 25% before 2010

Speaking at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Hewlett Packard has committed to cut the energy consumption of its desktop and notebook computers by 25 percent by 2010.

HP expects to reach its 2010 energy reduction goal integrating more efficient power supplies and lower-energy chipsets and other energy-saving technologies and processes across its volume PC portfolio.

“HP for decades has been integrating environmentally responsible components and processes across the entire product lifecycle,” said Tony Bill, vice president and general manager, Personal Systems Group, HP South Pacific. “We are dedicated to meeting our energy consumption goal of 25 percent reduction by 2010, and these additional EPEAT-Gold registrations exemplify how HP leads the IT market in reducing the environmental impact of its products and business processes.”

The EPEAT system (Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool) helps shoppers evaluate, compare and select desktop computers, notebooks and monitors based on the products’ environmental attributes. EPEAT evaluates electronic products according to three tiers of environmental performance: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

HP now leads the industry in the number of EPEAT Gold listed products with the introduction of more than two dozen PCs registered at either the Gold or Silver rating levels.
