Verdiem Launches free energy monitoring app – Edison

  • Comments 2

Today Verdiem announced Edison, a free energy monitoring application that allows eco-conscious consumers to actively control their PC’s energy consumption – and their household’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.  Microsoft and Climate Savers Computing Initiative (CSCI) are supporting Edison as an easy way for consumers to become active to reach the Climate Savers Computing Initiative’s goal of reducing global CO2 emissions from the operation of computers by 54 million tons by 2010. Verdiem and Microsoft are both members of the Climate Savers Computing Initiative, a nonprofit group of eco-conscious consumers, businesses and conservation organizations committed to reducing the power consumption of PCs and servers.

Verdiem is challenging PC consumers to download 10 million copies of Edison (approximately 1 percent of the global PC population) in the next year. Made for the Windows operating system, Edison enhances existing PC power settings and provides a consumer-friendly interface that is easy to set up and manage.

EDISON Features

Edison offers a simple solution for the individual PC user. The software features include:

  • Scheduling – allows users to identify work and non-work schedules to optimize power schemes based on when the PC is in use or on standby.
  • Settings – provides several options of desired power savings and settings. Simply choose the most appropriate and it applies 24x7x365.
  • Estimated Savings Reports – offers information that correlates PC power settings to money, kWh and CO2 savings.
  • Intuitive User Interface – easy to use sliding bars help consumers choose settings and instantly see the power and monetary savings. Clearly marked tabs help users navigate through the interface.
