Abstract

A decision to replace computers and office equipment generally should not be based only on electricity demand. Typical decisions may be based on need of specific equipment, or elimination of such need (e.g., fax is no longer needed since company is now using direct fax-to-email system). Most of the savings in the office are associated with reduction or elimination of paper and ink use.
