The Green Grid® Association, the global authority on effective and accountable resource efficiency across the entire information and communications technology (ICT) ecosystem, today released the following statement:
Recent headlines about the use of The Green Grid’s PUE metric in American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standard 90.4 have created confusion about industry support for PUE. PUE enjoys broad support, extensive usage and continues to be a foundational –and evolving –tool for the ICT industry’s push for greater energy efficiency. ASHRAE Standard 90.4 is intended to replace ASHRAE standard 90.1 as the model building code energy efficiency standard for data center infrastructure.
