Executive Summary

Green IT, by most accounts, is not a frontline initiative by corporate IT departments, but rather a positive side effect of what IT departments are already being tasked to do given current economic conditions. In fact, the slowdown in the economy and overall IT spending presents ideal conditions for moving towards more efficient use of technologies, which supports corporate Green IT initiatives. According to a study IT plays a major role in corporate green initiatives, primarily when addressing energy consumption within the data center.

These include newer energy efficient server and networking hardware, advanced Power-Distribution Units (PDUs), and intelligent HVAC equipment.
