Green technology: how schools can cut ICT spending

Simple efficiency measures in schools' use of technology are often all that's needed to save energy, resources and the environment. In an effort to save up to 20% of its whole school budget over the next year, Sawtry community college has focused on technology to provide some cost-cutting solutions.
As existing hardware wears out, the Huntingdon school is planning to replace its desktop computers with thin client PCs, which function without hard drives with processing done by servers. They use less energy and consequently emit less heat, which, in a room of 30 machines, has the knock-on effect of diminishing air-conditioning costs.
