Sun Microsystems, best known for making large servers that get stuck in corporate basements, has launched an online community site called OpenEco to help firms track and compare energy use.
As the site explains: “OpenEco is a new global on-line community that provides free, easy-to-use tools to help participants assess, track, and compare business energy performance, share proven best practices to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and encourage sustainable innovation.”
The hope is that firms will start to open up and share their data, in order to benchmark themselves against others.
And that’s about all we have to say about that. Let us know if you’ve tried it out.
