Nowadays technology-based means are elements in every-day’s life, they ease running household and institution needs. In Libya the number of newly established institutions is on the rise in both the private and public sectors, with such growth there must be a concomitant increase in the use of electronic devices/gadgets. However, after a while these electronic devices will be out of date, and here a suitable strategy of Green Computing must be considered. This study aims to shed light on ways to save electricity consumption as a main factor for green computing, and to help publicize the understanding of green computing in institutions. Furthermore, awareness of green computing importance will be raised, through introducing the green computing concept to companies using a field study. The current study is a trial and was conducted in one of the biggest companies in Libya, namely the Arabian Gulf Oil Company (AGOCO). Consequently, we had come up with a number of recommendations that were classified into general and specific. General recommendations: These deal with the concept of green computing and what must be done to implement the steps for its correct application. Specific recommendations: These reflect the company’s plans to enhance power saving through green computing that are suitable for running their daily business.
Key words: Green Computing / Green IT / Environment / Sustainable Energy / Energy-Aware / Eco Friendly Computing.
