PC Powersave Seeks MSP Beta Testers for Energy Efficiency Software

September 12, 2023 by Joe Panettieri

PC Powersave is seeking beta testers in the MSP community. The company's software is designed to decrease PC energy consumption, save customers money, and provide reports for MSPs to prove the energy-savings ROI (Return on Investment) to customers.

PC Powersave was launched by Daniel Ellis (pictured above) CEO of EPX Technical Services -- an IT solutions provider in Europe. (Special thanks to ConnectWise veteran Craig Fulton, an advisor at Evergreen, for the unsolicited intro to Ellis and PC Powersave.)

PC Powersave - Potential MSP and Customer Benefits

PC Powersave emphasizes four potential benefits for MSPs and their end-customers. According to the startup, the software can:

  1. Save Energy: "Intelligent shutdowns, subtle CPU throttling, dynamic power profiles and rogue process alerting tools all work together to reduce the energy consumption of your client’s computer systems," PC Powersave asserts.
  2. Extend Laptop Battery Life: "The same tools that reduce energy on desktop computers extend the runtime of laptop batteries, and prolong the lifespan of the batteries," the company asserts.
  3. Generate Return on Investment (ROI) Reports: "Regular reports are generated to prove how much energy is being saved due to PC Powersave, proving the value of PC Powersave again and again," the company states.
  4. Fast ROI with No Obligation: The software "installs for free, analyses the machine to estimate savings and only becomes chargeable when you switch on the power-saving functionality." A paid monthly version involves no long-term contracts," PC Powersave points out.

Note: We have not personally tested the software.

The beta test surfaces at a key time -- particularly in Europe, where energy prices have fluctuated dramatically amid inflation and supply chain issues associated with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Although wholesale electricity prices in the European Union decreased in the first half of 2023 -- the decline came after soaring prices in 2021 and 2022, Statista notes.

Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD): Why IT Service Providers Should Care

Meanwhile, businesses worldwide are preparing to comply with the European Union CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive). By 2024, EU companies with more than 500 employees or more than €40m in turnover will be required to report on their environmental, social and governance (ESG) impact.

In many cases, the CSRD directive extends beyond companies in the European Union. For instance, certain U.S. companies and other international companies will need to comply with the directive based on their EU business activities and other variables, PwC notes.

Amid that backdrop, IT service providers should take a closer look at energy management services and ESG reporting software as potential business opportunities, Sustainable Tech Partner asserts.
