Further to Le Roux’s post – which indicates an average annual printing volume of 16 million pages on our network printers – I ran the numbers through HP’s carbon calculator (in this post). The results are … sort of scary….

From 2003 to 2006 network printing volumes at Stellenbosch University have increased tremendously. In 2003 only 350 000 pages were logged, in 2006 16 200 000 pages were logged!

Luckily it seems that these volumes have stabilised. During 2007 18.2 million pages were logged. Last year 17.6 million pages and during the first quarter of 2009 4.2 million pages were logged. (more…)

Here’s a useful tool for calculating the carbon, energy and cost impacts of printing solutions. As we know printing volumes on campus are enormous – and enormously wasteful. This calculator helps you calculate the environmental and cost impact, obviously shows the savings and lower impacts to be realised with HP gear, and compares their solutions with those of competitors. What is really nice is that it can be localised for South African Rands and energy costs.

The computer lab in the Faculty of Science, NARGA, has 4 classrooms and 2 open areas containing a total of 310 computers. Of the 6 rooms, 4 are available 24 hours a day. Obviously not all the computers are in use all of the time. We have implemented an auto-shutdown policy that applies in the event that a computer becomes idle after hours. This policy has been active since the beginning of 2008. (more…)
