History of TGG:
The Green Grid was founded in 2007 with the collective viewpoint that energy efficiency in the data center is one of the most significant issues facing technology providers and their customers. This situation is not only due to exponential increases in power and cooling costs over the past few years, but also because customer demand for concentrated computing is outpacing the availability of clean reliable power in many places around the world. The Green Grid is the first industry initiative chartered to take a holistic view of the ICT ecosystem, with a focus on addressing the pressing issues facing data center users. In 2019 TGG was acquired as an affiliate member of the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), which is a premier trade association that works to advance public policies for the tech sector.
The Green Grid is led by an Executive Leadership Council made up of Contributor level Members and is supported by an Executive Committee made up of ITI staff.
Our members come together from across the globe and represent all sectors of the data center industry, including end-users, policymakers, technology providers, facility architects, utility companies, and academia.
The Green Grid partners with technical organizations and government institutions across the global ICT ecosystem to collaborate on the development and adoption of a common set of metrics and measurements for data center resource efficiency.
We recognize the dedication, time, and work our members put into furthering our mission and enhancing the resources available to the ICT industry.
