EPA Announces ENERGY STAR for Computer Servers

Monday, May 18, 2009

EPA announced new ENERGY STAR requirements for computer servers. Computer servers that earn the ENERGY STAR will be, on average, 30% more energy efficient than standard servers. This specification is effective immediately. If all servers sold in the United States meet this new specification, energy cost savings would grow to $800 million per year and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from over one million vehicles.
