Uniblue is a provider of innovative software solutions for PC operational problems such as security, performance and backup. LocalCooling is a non-profit project from the Uniblue Labs team. More than 30 billion kilowatts of energy is wasted because many simply forget to shut down computers they’re not in use. With a more efficient power save mode the PC user community can make a real difference to global warming. This fact conceived the idea for LocalCooling. Even though PC power consumption is a small fraction of total energy use, it is still big enough to be a contributory factor. Local Cooling is a way for the PC user community to come together and make a difference today. It is also a way to make people more aware of how much energy everyday appliances like computers actually consume and what it equals in environmental terms.
