This paper is a natural progression of the work that The Green Grid and the industry have already done to advance energy efficiency in data centers. The Green Grid recognizes that there is a need for something that is simpler to implement than the DCeP metric, and that can be used to make comparisons of the work done within a data center. To that end, The Green Grid is proposing that a simple indicator, or proxy, while less accurate than a metric such as DCeP, can be useful because it will be easier to implement. To define a suitable proxy, or proxies, The Green Grid is engaging the industry by offering several proxy proposals. You can learn about these proxies in the White Paper.
