A review of the ICT systems of the organisation and the potential for the integration of sustainability. Recommendations on how sustainability can be integrated into each system Suitable short-term technology options for implementing sustainability and achieving the reduction of power usage. Recommendation on which option/s would be of greatest benefit to the organisation. 2. Gather power consumption data It has been decided that you should conduct a power consumption audit and collect. power consumption data for presentation at a meeting with senior staff. Identify a suitable tool for measuring power consumption and standards for determining whether the power consumption is reasonable or not. You will complete this assessment in your RTO using computers provided by your assessor. Complete the power consumption measurement on the computers provided As you do this, summarise to your assessor the method you have chosen for measuring power consumption, why you chose this method and the standard against which you are measuring power consumption.. Take notes on your findings. You have received the following email from Angela: Dear IT Manager It was great to meet with you and to hear your recommendations. We would like you to proceed with the following sustainability actions: • Develop a sustainability policy and procedures Implement a hibernation plan for all computers to achieve power reduction. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about these. Regards Angela 5. Develop a sustainability policy and procedures. The policy and procedures should include: Purpose Scope Key Performance Indicators (KPI) Responsibilities At least six ICT projects (in order of priority) that would foster sustainability and environmental best practice.

Use the Sustainability Policy and Procedures Template to guide your work. You now receive the following email from Angela: Dear IT Manager Yesterday evening I had a very interesting discussion with a colleague who suggested to me that we adopt a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. Our current, thick client system uses 60 watts per hour per computer. Apparently, a zero-client system uses an average of 10 watts per hour per computer. Take the average price of electricity in Australia as 30 cents (0.30) per kWh. The company operates for 50 weeks in the year. The total cost to implement that VDI solution would be $6,000. If I remember correctly from our recent energy audit, we have 20 staff using their computers for about 36 hours per week, 10 use theirs about 30 hours per week, and 10 about 20 hours per week. Could you please work out what our energy usage would be if we undertake this project? And also estimate the payback period would be if we adopt their suggestion. Please leave the workings in your calculations so I can follow them.. I would also appreciate it if you can convert the kWh used into CO² emissions Please write this up in a detailed report and send it to me as soon as you are finished. Regards Angela Using this E mail. Write an Energy Audit Report Using the information from the case study and from internet research, write a report that includes the following: The company's computer energy usage currently and what it would be if the proposed ICT project is carried out. The potential financial savings from adopting the VDI system. The payback periods. The estimated CO2 emissions be if the project is carried out, compared to the benchmark of current usage.
