Cut Energy Costs and Reduce Carbon

Reduce Energy and Carbon with Green-Sky from PC FuturesManage your energy consumption on your IT Infrastructure with GREEN-SKY.

Energy bills continue to rise and there seems very little chance of them falling, the pressure is on to reduce costs and saving on energy costs is becoming a hot topic.  The EU is looking at legislation to require businesses of all shapes and sizes to monitor and reduce their carbon emissions, so finding a solution that can save on energy costs, reduce carbon footprint and effectively pay for itself is now at the forefront of organisations thinking. We think we have the solution!

We are pleased to announce our new energy usage management and monitoring tool GREEN-SKY.  For a small monthly fee per device GREEN-SKY will regulate your IT systems to help reduce energy wastage, CO2 emissions and more importantly energy costs.

By using fully manageable intelligent energy saving policies for multiple users, organisational groups or even individual computers.  When you create a new policy it automatically predicts what energy savings applying it would be.

GREEN-SKY has a full cloud based management and reporting system allowing organisations to manage and report on their energy saving profile.
