For contract regarding nightly turn-of of computers
At the municipality of Copenhagen, around 5000 computers are switched on throughout the night every night. It is estimated that around 25% of these are switched on, on the basis of an actual need, this con-cerns approximately 1,250 computers, while the other 75%, which correspond to approximately 3,750 computers, simply have not been switched off after work.
In an attempt to reduce costs on the municipality’s electric bill as well as having a wish to reduce the CO2 emission Koncernservice (the shared service center) has put out a proposal to invest in software that will automatically switch off the computers that are not being used during the night. The proposal will mean that every computer not in use after 8 pm will be switched off till 6 am, unless it is reported to Koncernservice that the computer shall not be included in the arrangement.
