Reducing Costs in Healthcare and Higher Educationthrough Green IT:

The Changing Impact of IT on Energy Consumption & Operating Costs

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority invites you to join our expert panel on Monday, November 14th:

  • Mark Moroses, CIO, Continuum Health Partners
  • James Haggard, Deputy CIO, CUNY
  • Joe Sestito, Data Center Consolidation Program Manager, IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
  • Steve Cohen, Executive Director, Columbia University’s Earth Institute (Moderator)
This panel will bring together leaders in the healthcare and higher education sectors to discuss how energy consumption and costs affect organizational IT decisions and capital investments. Over the last decade, hospitals and universities have seen a significant increase in energy consumption from IT infrastructure. New requirements for maintaining electronic records and rising demands from end users coupled with soaring electricity costs have made IT-related energy costs a major operating expense. Aside from saving money, the motivation to install energy-efficient technology is amplified as more and more hospitals and universities incorporate environmental sustainability into their organizational missions.
