IBM®, together with some business partners, has developed expertise in identifying incentive opportunities, quantifying energy use reductions, and reporting energy savings in ways that comply with the requirements of various programs. This IBM Redguide™ document is an introduction to the services we provide to help companies plan, implement, and claim the incentive rewards for energy efficiency projects. It includes a case study illustrating how we applied this knowledge in our own data centers, thereby reducing our energy using and qualifying IBM for incentive money, while also developing the methodology we provide to our clients.
