Benefits of Membership

There are four ways to join: as a Contributor Member, General Member, Associate Member, or Individual Member. Which level of membership is right for you will depend on how much influence your organization wants to have in driving the mission of the organization.

Tgg Mission Reach

Global Reach, Local Impact

The Green Grid is working closely with end-users, technology providers and governments around the world to create standards for more efficient use of resources in data centers. Through data collection and analysis, assessment of emerging technologies and devising best practices for data center operators, we are creating industry-leading metrics and measurements for executives and end-users anywhere in the world to determine the efficiency of their specific data centers.

Help Shape the Dialog

Regardless of the nature of your organization or your role in it, The Green Grid offers a place for you in the dialog. According to a recent study by Emerson Network Power, 72% of companies surveyed do not have a documented strategy for reducing energy use in the data center, although most agree that data center energy consumption is a real issue of concern. Our organization provides a forum where IT, Facilities and other C-level executives come together to discuss different options that exist for improving resource efficiency. Findings and recommendations from these forums are published on a regular basis, and metrics have been established which are now industry-standard.

Tgg Mission Intersect

Where Government and Industry Organizations Intersect

Many industry organizations and governments want to help their members and constituents better address resource efficiency. The Green Grid is the only organization working across these many diverse organizations with the singular purpose of creating standards to help end-users better measure and manage data center energy efficiency. These close collaborations have resulted in the wide adoption of Green Grid-created metrics such as Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE™), Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE™), and the development of others including Carbon Usage Effectiveness (CUE™), Water Usage Effectiveness (WUE™), and Data Center Productivity (DCP).

Members have the opportunity to participate
actively by attending members-only meetings in
the US,
EMEA, Japan, and China.

"Participating as a Contributor Member with The
Green Grid organization has allowed GE Energy
– Digital Energy to stay current on global data
center industry trends (PUE™ standards, high
efficiency UPS, server specs, AC vs DC power) and
contribute to data center industry standards (UPS
high efficiency, EPA ENERGY STAR program, white
papers, technical committees).”
