SERT™ stands for Server Efficiency Rating Tool and it was developed by SPEC® in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It collects measurements and uses an accompanying efficiency metric to assess computer server energy efficiency for ENERGY STAR certification. The tool is now used by the ENERGY STAR program and the EU Lot 9 EcoDesign regulation, as well as Japan’s Top Runner program for computer servers, as a harmonized way to evaluate computer server efficiency data in different geographies across the globe.
