EPA Released First Draft of Server Energy Star Guidelines

The Environmental Protection Agency has released the first draft of specifications for Energy Star for servers, reports. Energy Star is completely voluntary, but has become important for businesses looking to be energy efficient, an increasing need in the corporate business world due to customer demand.

EPA will work with industry groups like Climate Savers and 80Plus to develop consistent test procedures and efficiency levels.
