Green Grid and EPA Collaboration

After my comments on Wednesday it's good news to hear that The Green Grid has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the EPA.

The Green Grid is a consortium of information technology companies and professionals seeking to improve energy efficiency in data centers around the globe. Principal members include Dell, HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft and Sun. The EPA is the US Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA's Energy Star ratings are a standard for IT products.

The two organisations will first look to make the EPA's computer facilities more energy efficient and then share the results with other government agencies and eventually out into the private sector.
