DDR3 could be run on a lower voltage and save on energy costs.US companies, or those with a manufacturing base in the country, should seek to get into green technology he said.“There is $77.6bn in the stimulus package for green energy and technology,” he said.Investing in technology made not only environmental sense but also meant saving space an dpower by upgrading.
