Large scale, multi-country study confirms enormous carbon reduction potential for organizations with large PC fleets.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — TrickleStar Inc (TrickleStar – CYW), an industry leader in energy efficiency solutions announces the results of a comprehensive study of over 417,000 workplace PC’s confirming average carbon reduction of 105 -147 lbs of carbon per PC, per year. In energy saving terms this equates to an average 43% reduction in energy waste with highest savings at nearly 70%.

New TrickleStar Advanced Keyboard delivers average energy savings of 43% for workplace PC’s

TrickleStar the inventor of the patented, Advanced Keyboard was recently awarded a 2022 Red Dot Product Design Award for design excellence.

The Advanced Keyboard uses innovative proximity sensing technology to rapidly sense user absence. Once a PC user is absent, the Advanced Keyboard instantly puts the PC to sleep, in as little as 30 seconds, much faster than the traditional method of sensing user keyboard and mouse input.

The research analysed 417,000 workplace desktop computers in operation and determined the following energy savings and carbon reductions:

Carbon reduction potential is greatest in the USA due to the high amount of fossil fuels in the national energy mix. Annual worldwide carbon abatement of 16bn lbs CO2e / year is achievable if the Advanced Keyboard was universally adopted. Such a reduction in pollution would free the sequestration capability of 8.9m acres of mature forest covering a land mass greater than the Netherlands.

“This is a game changing solution that is so simple and easy to implement across organizations. Organizations can progress their ESG and Net Zero agenda with minimal effort. Many organizations have completed the obvious improvements to lighting and HVAC, but boards and sustainability champions are pushing aggressively for further carbon reductions”, said Bernard Emby, CEO of TrickleStar. “Advanced Keyboards are one of the most easily implemented carbon reduction opportunities in buildings.
