For the first time, EPA has announced Energy Star requirements for computer servers. On average, computer servers that earn the Energy Star label will be 30 percent more energy efficient than standard servers.

Computer servers that earn the Energy Star label will have efficient power supplies that generate less waste heat, improved power quality, capabilities to measure real time power use, processor utilization, and air temperature, advanced power management features to save energy across various operating states and a power and performance data sheet for purchasers that standardizes key information on energy performance, features and other capabilities.

If all servers sold in the United States meet this new specification, energy cost savings would grow to $800 million per year and prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from more 1 million vehicles.
