A majority of governments have implemented programs to reduce energy consumed by IT or are planning to do so, according to technology vendor CDW-G’s third-annual Energy Efficient IT Report.

Data in the report was based largely on a survey the vendor hired public relations firm O’Keeffe and Company to conduct in July. Of the survey’s 756 respondents, 154 were state or local government IT professionals, and 62 percent of those respondents said they had developed or were developing programs to manage and reduce energy use in IT. Of that 62 percent, nearly two in three respondents said they had already reduced IT energy costs by 1 percent or more.
