IPM+ was deployed at a leading healthcare provider having 1,000+ PCs across its several facilities

Organisations from any industry sector can benefit from the ground breaking technology of IPM+.

  • IPM+ Enterprise Edition was deployed to enable energy savings in the personal computing environment
  • Deployment environment
    • 100 Windows PCs distributed across 3 physical locations
    • IPM+ Console installed on a PC (acting as Server)
    • IPM+ agents were deployed on PCs using Active Directory
  • Systems were grouped as per functional areas of the hospital
    • Registration
    • Doctors
    • Wards
    • IT and Administration

Energy consumption was baselined for 4 weeks and idle time patterns recorded across business functions

  • Energy consumption = 3,449 kWh for 41,422 hours of system ON
  • Idle time as % of system ON
    • Overall across systems = 79%
      • Doctors – 82%
      • Wards – 79%
      • IT & Admin – 76%
      • Registration – 80%
      • Peak Daily Energy Consumption recorded was 141.50 kWh
      • Average Energy Consumption per node = 1.31 kWh
  • Notice the weekly dips on Sundays when IT and Admin systems are powered off

33% energy savings was demonstrated after enabling IPM+ power savings policies

  • 33% savings amounting to 1,285 kWh of electricity
    • Equivalent to 583 Kgs of CO2
  • Various power savings actions taken during idle times
    • For example, in Registration 170.7 kWh of energy saved through:
      • Monitor off – 610 hours
      • Standby – 342 hours
      • Hibernate – 1,850 hours
      • Adaptive processor speeds as per the individual system’s utilization

IPM+ enabled advanced optimizations to reduce energy spent during system usage and idle times

WITHOUT Energy Savings

  • Average Energy Consumption Per PC = 1.31 kWh/Day
  • Opportunities for energy savings identified
    • Idle time observed in PCs is 80%
    • Less than 20% CPU utilization observed for most of the PCs

WITH IPM+ Energy Savings

  • Average Energy Consumption Per PC = 0.82 kWh/Day
  • Opportunities for energy savings leveraged
    • Idle time was reduced by 72%
    • Adaptive processor speeds enabled in line with CPU utilization

CIO got a real-time, enterprise-wide energy and sustainability dashboard

  • Software Energy Meter accurately reports Energy Consumed and Saved
  • Energy savings quantified in monetary terms
  • Sustainability Dashboard reports
    • CO2 emissions reduced on account of energy usage reduction
    • Environmental impact in terms of trees planted

100 MegaWattHours of Energy Savings per annum creates a strong monetary and social impact

  • Fostering a powerful CSR initiative
    • 100 MWh can power 1,00,000 average Indian homes for a day
    • 90 Tonnes of CO2 emissions reduced per annum
    • Equivalent to planting 2,200 to 2,500 trees
  • Estimated Energy Consumption in 1,000 PCs in a year
    • Without energy savings = 340,353 kWh
    • With energy savings = 231,372 kWh
    • 50% Return on Investment for the Healthcare Provider
    • Bottomline impact – the client makes a Profit by implementing IPMPlus
