Five Green Tech Offerings at New York EcoFocus

by Nicholas Kolakowski
Sony, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo and other companies came together for EcoFocus, a demo event for the latest green technologies held at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York, on the night of April 29. For many IT companies, green is the next big thing: With laptop makers tinkering with the power consumption of their key offerings in order to leave a smaller carbon footprint, and new organizations such as Tesla Motors trying to use green IT in traditional industries such as the automotive industry, it seems as if everyone sees environmentally friendly technology as the wave of the future. Many of the companies that unveiled wares at EcoFocus decided to focus on the conservation side of green IT, building devices that sip energy while still providing a necessary level of function.
