Reduced energy consumption with upKeeper Energy
With the help of upKeeper Energy, 6,500 of the county’s computers (84%) are now automatically shut down at the end of the working day and start back up the next morning. This is the result of an energy-saving project within Region Halland’s IT operations.
A feasibility study showed that there were great opportunities to change Region Halland’s IT environment to save energy and reduce costs.
– Before the energy saving measures were implemented, only half of the computers were shut down manually. This amount to about SEK 1 million in reduced energy consumption per year, says Thomas Segerlind, Head of IT Clients in Region Halland.
“Now we save about SEK 1 million on energy consumption each year.”

All Region Halland computers are covered by upKeeper Energy, whether used at work, at home or on the road. Exceptions are made for so-called 24/7 computers used in round-the-clock operations.
Thomas Segerlind points out that the simplicity and agility of upKeeper is an unbeatable combination: upKeeper makes the working day more comfortable for users, keeps down the costs for Region Halland and improves the overall working environment.
