This session reviews the progress and current status specific to the Global Harmonization of Metrics effort. In 2009 The Green Grid, in collaboration with organizations around the globe, began driving toward a set of metrics and indices that can be formally adopted by all participant organizations to improve data center energy efficiency globally. Groups participating in this effort are the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the European Union Code of Conduct, Japan’s Green IT Promotion Council, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, and various additional industry groups.
