Peterborough City Council Saves £50,000 per Year on Energy Costs Alone with 1E. Peterborough City Council estimated that 30% of its PCs were being left on unnecessarily. As an authority it is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and providing an example to others to advocate emission savings.

Project Requirements:
• Reduce carbon emissions by enforcing the shut down of PCs and laptops.
• Better manage the ICT infrastructure.
• Deliver software faster and more cost effectively.
• Save money by reducing the amount of electricity being wasted on PCs left in standby mode for long periods of time.
• Retain the integrity of documents worked on.
• Provide better management reporting to demonstrate Peterborough City Council as a leader in energy management.

Solution Summary:
• Introduce Microsoft software to better manager the ICT estate and consistently deliver software to the desktop.
• Implement NightWatchman to enforce the shutdown of PCs and laptops.
• Make available new options of software via Shopping to users and reduce cost to execute.

Key Benefits:
• A cash saving of £50k per annum on electricity.
• Over 100 hours of ICT staff time saved by moving to Shopping.
• Over 250 hours of ICT staff time saved by introducing Systems Management best practice and tools including Nomad Enterprise from 1E.
• A reduction of 250 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

The project delivered a return on investment in less than 3 months to the Council.

Customer prole
Peterborough City Council is a unitary council serving a populaonof 170,000, with 4,500 sta including schools. It is already rateda ‘good’ authority and is commied to achieving excellencewithin 18 months through an extensive corporate transformaonprogramme driving performance improvement and cost reducon.A recent report from the Naonal Energy Foundaon has foundthat carbon emissions equivalent to all the cars in a city the sizeof Liverpool could be saved every year if UK organizaons simplyturned o their computers overnight and at weekends.The research found that one in ve workers leaves their computeron at work at least three mes a week, wasng 1.5 billion kWhof electricity and generang signicant amounts of unnecessarygreenhouse gases. This equates to 10% of the UK’s Climate ChangeLevy target of 2 MtC.
The challenge
Peterborough City Council has 4,500 sta and it was esmatedthat 30% of PCs were being le on at some point, cosng theauthority between £40 - £60 per annum per machine. Educangthe user community had been tried and a shut down policy wasin place but the percepon remained that machines that wentinto standby mode were powered o. This resulted in signicantpower sll being used by machines le on standby, parcularlyover weekends.The objecves of the UK Climate Change Act 2008 make tacklingenergy waste and reducing carbon emissions a high priority for thepublic sector. In addion, Peterborough wanted to demonstrateits commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and neededdemonstrable evidence of its work to reduce emissions and toreduce cost.
