Report to Congress on Server and Data Center Energy Efficiency

Abstract:On August 2, 2007 and in response to Public Law 109--431 PDF (31KB) the U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR Program released to Congress a report assessing opportunities for energy efficiency improvements for government and commercial computer servers and data centers in the United States. The report recommends priority efficiency opportunities and policies that can also lead to additional savings using state-of-the-art technologies and operations. The report shows that data centers in the United States have the potential to save up to $4 billion in annual electricity costs through more energy efficient equipment and operations, and the broad implementation of best management practices. The report, its appendices and its executive summary are available for download in PDF format at the URL listed here.
