Yahoo Launches ‘Green Screen’ Energy-Use Monitor
In order to engage employees on environmental issues, Yahoo has launched a “Green Screen,” an interactive energy monitoring display that monitors live energy use at the company’s Sunnyvale headquarters.
It’s located in Yahoo’s cafeteria for employees to see, touch and follow along with real-time updates on energy use at the campus. The plan is to roll out other green screens to more Yahoo campuses over time.
The Green Screen, which uses the Building Dashboard technology by Lucid Design Group, gives users the ability to see, for example, how many pounds of carbon have been emitted per person on the Sunnyvale campus. Employees will also be able to see energy consumption across buildings and compare trends viewed over time.
Yahoo is displaying green tips too – such as commute options and where to shop for green products. The Green Screen will also be available on Yahoo’s corporate intranet.
