1E And VeryPC Named Green Suppliers 2008 At The Green IT Expo Awards

Power-reducing software solutions provider 1E (www.1e.com) has been announced as the winner of the inaugural Green Supplier Award at Green IT Expo 2008, the UK’s first free-to-attend event focusing on sustainable computing. Head of Global Sales at 1E, Jon McKellar, accepted the award from Managing Director of conference organiser Revolution Events, Richard Tribe, during the afternoon’s keynote sessions on 5th November.

“The award recognises 1E for its innovative range of products, in particular its Nightwatchman software, which was seen to offer a great solution to the common issue of PCs and other peripherals being left switched on after office hours,” says Tribe.

CEO of 1E, Sumir Karayi adds, “We are thrilled to have been recognised as Green Supplier 2008. Ten million people across 1,000 organisations in 42 countries worldwide are now using our products, all helping to reduce IT energy consumption on a larger scale.”

VeryPC (www.very-pc.co.uk), the Sheffield-based energy-efficient PC manufacturer were also awarded the runners-up prize, for its ‘totally holistic approach’ to building low-energy servers and PCs, whilst clearly quantifying the power savings. VeryPC’s Managing Director, Peter Hopton, accepted the award on the company’s behalf.

The Green Supplier Award honours IT suppliers that have shown outstanding commitment to providing greener IT hardware and software for the future. 1E and VeryPC were voted for by end-users from Revolution Event’s database of commercial, public and third sector organisations.
