Round Rock, Texas — Dell has made a commitment to increase the energy efficiency of its desktops and laptops by designing them to consume 25 percent less energy by 2010, relative to systems offered today.
“Our customers are inspiring us to address the environmental challenges facing our planet,” said Albert Esser, power and infrastructure solutions VP, Dell product group. “We’ve listened to them and are designing next-generation technologies that dramatically reduce energy consumption, drive meaningful cost savings and help achieve a low-carbon economy. It’s the right thing for our business, our customers and shared environment.”
The company said it plans to achieve its energy-efficiency goals by continuing to integrate Energy Smart technologies, including circuit designs, fans and power management features. It also said it’s working with its supplier base to further develop energy-efficient components, including chip sets, power supplies and memory.
