A Green New Year: Fujitsu Siemens Computers Already Meets the New EU Law Requirements for Standby Power Consumption

Munich, January 5, 2009 – The majority of Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ professional PCs already meet the new EU directive regarding low standby power consumption. The regulation went into effect on January 5, 2009 with a one year transitional period. The law states that as of January 5, 2010, all electrical and electronic office as well as household equipment must prove that they use less than 1 Watt on standby power. Thanks to Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ innovative "Low Power Soft Off” function, PCs in the ESPRIMO C/E/P5730 and ESPRIMO E/P7935 series as well as the CELSIUS W370 workstation are already well below this value today. Around 90 percent of these professional PCs are even below 0.5 Watt – a rate that is not required by law until 2013. These high standards from the leading European IT infrastructure provider emphasize once again Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ environmental product policy and its innovative leadership in "Green IT". Last year, the company had already introduced its 0-Watt-Monitor.
