Use Google Search To Save Energy, Believe It !!!

Post by Guest on Sun Nov 02, 2008 9:10 am

Microsoft has 148,357 servers & 15 Datacenters that gobble up loads of energy. Well, Google has a different eco-friendly story to tell regarding energy consumption of their datacenters and servers.

the energy used per Google search is minimal. In the time it takes to do a Google search, your own personal computer will use more energy than we will use to answer your query. Yeah, believe it and here is more.


Official Google Blog http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2008/10/saving-electricity-one-data-center-at.html explains steps taken by Google to save electricity and total energy consumption by their servers and datacenters. Following graph show their achievement by comparing Google and Non-Google datacenters.


Still not convinced? Google has special website http://www.google.com/corporate/datacenters/ explaining in detail 5-step approach to efficiency. So, next time you want save energy - use Google Search, are we doing anything different these day?


Google Rules!!! Thums up

Google Black...a Myth?????????


Reducing climate change by saving energy is an important effort we should all join, and that's why we're very glad to see the innovative thinking going into a variety of solutions. One idea, suggested by the site called "Blackle" (which is not related to Google, by the way, though the site does use our custom search engine), is to reduce energy used by monitors by providing search with a black background. We applaud the spirit of the idea, but our own analysis as well as that of others shows that making the Google homepage black will not reduce energy consumption. To the contrary, on flat-panel monitors (already estimated to be 75% of the market), displaying black may actually increase energy usage. Detailed results from a new study confirm this*.

As computers become a bigger part of more people's lives, they will consume an increasing amount of energy, which is why we've invested so much in making our data centers efficient and we've joined with others to launch Climate Savers Computing, which has a goal of reducing total power consumption by more than 50% for all computers by 2010.

There are some things you can do now to reduce the energy used by your computer, such as:

turn on the power management features. Virtually all computers today have the ability to switch into low-power modes automatically when they're idle; very few computers have this capability enabled!

turn off your monitor and computer when you're not using them

turn down the brightness on your monitor

make sure your next computer meets the efficiency standards of Climate Savers Computing (an efficient computer uses up to 50% less energy than a conventional one)
to find the most efficient PCs available today, look for the words "EnergyStar 4.0 compliant."
