PowerMAN at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
"The effect...was dramatic, particularly on public workstations"
"The real time data gives the school a great way to monitor if these initiatives are having the desired effect."
LSHTM is committed to reducing its energy consumption and has set challenging targets to
meet in this area, including a commitment to the 10:10 campaign.
While ICT accounts for around 2% of global carbon emissions, within HEIs it can account for
between 20-30% through use by staff and students. In order to help minimise the
consumption across departments within LSHTM, a PowerMAN solution, to
monitor PC activity and implement remote shutdown when PCs were not in use, was
The PowerMAN software creates detailed reports and graphs showing when individual machines or
groups of computers are in active use, logged in but idle, on but not logged in, or powered
off. Additionally, it provides the ability to implement actual power-saving measures such as
shutting down PCs, putting machines into standby and turning off monitors when a computer
is idle or not in use
