Yahoo Launches ‘Green Screen’ Energy-Use Monitor

yahoo_green_screen.jpgIn 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.

  1. Will it also display how much energy the screen itself uses?

    I hope that this information provides enough encouragement and feedback to negate the cost/impact of the display. Coupled with the right incentive programs, it most likely will!

  2. The particular display they are using here at Yahoo consumes only 80 Watts — even a miniscule reduction in energy usage would negate this. Based on the screenshot above, we’re using 1 MW at that moment, or 12,500 of these displays 🙂
