PLUS Plug Loads
Office equipment accounts for, on average, 25% of all energy consumed in a commercial office building or school.
Even when equipment is not in use, Standby Power accounts for as much as 10% of all electricity used in commercial and educational facilities. Autani provides functionality to control energy consumption by plug loads, and reduce unnecessary expenditure of resources, as a part of the PLUS Expansion Pack for the EnergyCenter family of products.
PLUS PC Management
The average desktop PC wastes more than 50% of the electricity that it consumes.
7 out of 10 office and school Personal Computers operate with their local power management disabled. Implementing central network control of PC power management can save between 30% and 65% of the energy consumed by Personal Computers.
