Update: EnergyStar for Server Workshop

March 7, 2009 – 1:43 pm

Here’s an update from a previous post about US EPA EnergyStar program team looking for data center feedback on the draft specs for EnergyStar for servers.

Dear Server Manufacturer or Other Interested Stakeholder,

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host an online stakeholder meeting on Monday, March 16 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST to discuss the recently released ENERGY STARÒ Draft 4 Computer Server specification.  

To participate in this online meeting, stakeholders must register no later than Thursday, March 12. Please RSVP to Rebecca Duff, ICF International, at [email protected].  If registering colleagues along with yourself, please include names, email addresses, and whether phone connections to the audio portion of the meeting will be shared.  There will be a limited number of lines available so attendees representing the same company are encouraged to share a connection.

Instructions for joining the online meeting will be provided via email to confirmed attendees on Friday, March 13. The Draft 4 specification and supporting documents are available on the ENERGY STAR Web site at www.energystar.gov (Click on New Specifications in Development).  

For those stakeholders who are unable to join the discussion, slides and meeting notes will be posted to the ENERGY STAR Web site.  

Stakeholders with questions can contact Rebecca Duff, ICF International, at (202) 862-1266 or Andrew Fanara, EPA, at [email protected] and (206) 553-6377.

Thanks for your continued support of ENERGY STAR!


There you have it, get involved if inclined, provide feedback, comments, critique or what have you.

Cheers – gs
