is simply energy efficient computing. For the average home user, this means, powering down your computer when it is not being used. If you are not using wake-on-LAN (WOL) technologies to remotely wake the computer then you can take an extra step and completely disconnect the power to your PC, monitor, and printer by shutting off your surge protector's ON/OFF power switch. The 5 to 10 watts does not seem significant but added up around the world and it is lots of saved energy.
For businesses green computing is a bit more complicated. Virtualization and cloud computing have the biggest impact. Virtualization essential creates dense computing as multiple servers are replaced by one new server. On average today's servers are more efficient and are able to run efficiently at warmer temperatures thereby reducing not only electricity consumption by the virtualization process but saving the energy necessary to cool your datacenter. The latest generation of servers have an operating temperature up to 45° Celsius (113° Fahrenheit).
Operating servers within their peak efficiency also helps reduce energy consumption. Other ways to reduce energy consumption is to replace old CRT and LCD monitors by LED monitors. LED monitors not only use less power but produce less heat. Replacing desktops with laptops and tablets wherever possible proves to be power saving as well.
