Round-table at IEEE Green Computing Conference to address harmonization of software and power management

ORLANDO, Fl - July 6, 2011 - Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI), the global consortium focused on reducing the energy consumption and carbon footprint of computing equipment through power management and more energy efficient computing technologies, today announced that it will bring power management experts and software developers together in Orlando for a July 26 round-table at the IEEE Green Computing Conference.

The event will serve as a forum for interested participants to address areas where software applications may interfere with power management on PCs and networked computers, and to collaborate on solutions. The round-table is sponsored by the CSCI Computer Power Management Workgroup and will be hosted by Abhishek Agrawal, senior software engineer, Intel, and George O. Goodman, executive director, CSCI.

"The use of computer power management within organizations and homes is growing and is an important tool for reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions," said Goodman. "Developers invited to participate in the CSCI round-table will take a leadership role in helping to ensure power management and software applications can always work together."

CSCI is holding the round-table after members learned of potential power management performance issues when used in conjunction with various software applications. A call for input was issued to CSCI members and the global IT industry to get more information about how software may affect power management. The call for input remains open at

Software developers interested in receiving an invitation to the July 26 round-table are encouraged to contact Goodman through his blog at

About Climate Savers Computing Initiative
CSCI is reducing energy consumption by increasing the energy efficiency of computing equipment, increasing the adoption and deployment of power management, and providing education about the financial and environmental benefits of energy efficient computing. Nearly 680 members have joined SCSI since its launch in 2007, and more than 10,000 people have joined as individuals by pledging to use power management and purchase energy efficient computing technologies. CSCI is led by Cisco, Emerson, F5 Networks, Google, Intel Juniper Networks, Microsoft, Samsung and World Wildlife Fund.

Please note that we encourage -- even seek -- discussion of the challenges you're facing regarding software interactions with power management. However, we won't permit the Comments to be used to advertise products. If you have a great power management-related product, please contact CSCI to discuss how you can participate and help lead the industry to reduce the energy used by ICT equipment.
