 "Green Campuses: The Road from Little Victories to Systematic Transformation" at http://www.greencampus.harvard.edu/about/documents/green_universities.pdf and overview of the Harvard Green Campus Initiative Overview (computer energy reduction plan begins on page 15). The whole overview document is very interesting because it gives specifics on some things they did in their science labs to increase efficiency and discusses ways to change behavior.http://www.greencampus.harvard.edu/
