March 2010 - IBM Corporation has registered Energy Efficiency Certificates (EECs) with APX North American Renewables Registry (NARR). Each EEC represents one megawatt-hour (MWh) of energy saved. IBM's EECs are derived from a project at its data center in Ontario, Canada, which is expected to save over 1,000 MWh annually. The savings are the result of the first phase of a virtualization and server consolidation project. In 2010, IBM plans to expand the project and estimates it will save 2,700 MWh annually. Neuwing Energy Ventures conducted an independent audit and verification of permanent reductions.
