Dell To Increase PC Energy Efficiency 25% By 2010
Dell announced plans to reduce the energy consumption of its products and avoid millions of tons of CO2 emissions worldwide by designing its laptops and desktops to consume up to 25 percent less energy by 2010.
Dell plans to continue integrating Energy Smart technologies including circuit designs, fans and power management features and is working with its supplier base to further develop and deliver energy-efficient components, including chip sets, power supplies and memory.
In about a month, it will set out an efficiency target for its server line as well, CNET reports. It says that the new energy efficient PCs could resemble a PC Michael Dell previewed last month which is 81 percent smaller than a standard mini-tower desktop, uses up to 70 percent less energy and comes in recycled and recyclable packaging.
