"Kiwibank applied for an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) technology grant. The EECA commissioned a third-party verification of the projected energy, cost and CO2 emissions savings. The independent verification confirmed that at an average of 15 cents per kWh, Kiwibank would be saving approximately NZ $27.32 per computer per year"
"“If all of the top 100 largest IT users in New Zealand were to use automated PC energy management software like NightWatchman from 1E across approximately 280,000 PCs, they would see a collective reduction in energy use of 51 GWh and savings of up to NZ$8 million per year in electricity costs; the equivalent of taking 3,000 cars off the roads, not to mention the positive contribution towards our national 50 by 50[i] carbon emissions reductions pledge,” says Matt Johnson, Managing Director, Transend Limited"
"“To date, we have saved our customers $550 million in energy savings alone with NightWatchman – that’s the equivalent of taking almost 750,000 cars off the roads[ii]. We are proud of Kiwibank’s independently verified savings, which are testament to the efficiencies that organizations worldwide can start to realise today,” says Sumir Karayi, CEO, 1E"
"“NightWatchman integrated seamlessly with Kiwibank’s existing Microsoft Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) platform, with no interruption to users. Providing accurate reporting on costs, energy and CO2 emissions with a quick payback, it is a compelling solution for every large organisation,” comments Matthew Johnson, Managing Director, Transend Limited"
