Following up on previous blog posts, here’s the latest on the U.S. EPA Energy Star for Servers program (in italics below) that was received this week:

Dear Server Manufacturer or Other Industry Stakeholder,

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) welcomes your input on the attached Final Draft ENERGY STAR® Version 1.0 Computer Server specification. Also attached is the latest version of the Power and Performance Data Sheet, referenced in Section 3.C of the specification. Please note that this is the final opportunity to comment on EPA’s proposal prior to finalization.

Interested parties are encouraged to submit comments on the Final Draft specification and Power and Performance Data Sheet to Rebecca Duff, ICF International, at [email protected] no later than May 8, 2009. 

The data set used to derive newly proposed I/O Idle allowances will be available for download from the ENERGY STAR Enterprise Server specification development Web page at www.energystar.gov/NewSpecs within the next several days. 

Stakeholders with questions or concerns can contact Andrew Fanara, EPA, at (206) 553-6377 or [email protected]
