Aviva, the world’s sixth-largest insurance group and the largest insurance services provider in the United Kingdom, has selected NightWatchman, a PC power management tool, to cut costs and drive out energy waste, says 1E, a software and services company.

1E says NightWatchman is being deployed across Aviva’s U.K. estate of circa 30,000 PCs, with trials suggesting the technology could enable the insurance group to prevent the equivalent annual CO2 emissions of 500 modern family cars from entering the atmosphere. These projected figures are based on analysis conducted by 1E and Aviva on 856 PCs during a two-week period in May 2010, says 1E.

“We are only too aware of the challenges posed by climate change,” says Christine Fraser, property and financial services director at Aviva. “Managing our impact on the environment is central to our Corporate Responsibility program. We approached 1E and saw their solution as the best fit for what we need to achieve.”
