Emily Reyna was brought in to help reduce energy use in the company's data labs.
At networking technology giant Cisco Systems, EDF Climate Corps fellow Emily Reyna was brought in to help reduce energy used by the company’s data labs.
Reyna helped develop plans for the installation of Power Distribution Units (PDUs), an energy-saving device for equipment in R&D labs.
The equipment recommended by Reyna would save an estimated $8 million per year (with an 18-month payback) and reduce Cisco's greenhouse gas emissions by 3%.
