Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives approved the Energy Efficiency Improvement Act, which requires commercial and federal facilities—particularly data centers—to operate more efficiently.
H.R. 2126 also endorses the development of best practices, and the deployment of energy-efficient and energy-reduction technologies in federal data centers. These federal facilities consume about 10 percent of all U.S. data center energy use, according to The Green Grid Association.
If it becomes law, every federal agency will have to consider:
- Advanced metering infrastructure
- Energy-efficient data center strategies
- Effective power management tools
- And building energy modeling, among other things
