It is that one crucial hour uniting the world and building synergies through the collective action of switching off non essential lights in celebration of life and our planet. Earth Hour is a unique opportunity for individuals, groups, businesses and governments to do something positive for the environment. It is not just about saving energy for that one hour, but it symbolizes the first step in the direction of adopting environment friendly activities into everyday life, which will lead the way towards a cleaner environment and sustainable lifestyle.
What is new in 2013?Saving power in computers This year we are starting a new trend in India by enabling power savings in computers using a software made in India by Vigyanlabs called IPMPlus which helps in intelligent power management of IT infrastructure. Here is why In 2012, data centres worldwide consumed 322 TeraWattHours of electricity. This is enough to power entire Russia for 1 year. Newspapers have reported last year that internet and IT infrastructure emit 830 million Tonnes of CO2 every year. You could say, well, we need the internet; we need our PCs and mobiles. What can we do about reducing the environmental impact? You can easily help by enabling power savings in your computers.
