“An EPA report, entitled Report to Congress on Server and Data Center Energy Efficiency (133 pages, PDF), assesses the national energy impacts from data centers in the U.S. The report recommends priority efficiency opportunities and policies which together have the potential to save up to $4 billion in annual electricity costs through broad implementation of best practices. Additional savings are available using state of the art technologies and operations.”
EPA Press Release: On August 2, 2007 and in response to Public Law 109431, the U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR Program released to Congress a report assessing opportunities for energy efficiency improvements for government and commercial computer servers and data centers in the United States.
