According to a story in Datacenter Dynamics . scientists at the US Environmental Protection Agency are getting close to the end of a several-year-long effort of creating an Energy Star rating for data centers , a 1 to 100 rating that has been available for most other types of commercial buildings. The rating system for mission-critical facilities will be launched in early June, said the agency's Alexandra Sullivan, who led the development of the rating.

 

The rating will be based on a data center efficiency metric the EPA team developed. It will be calculated by dividing total source energy delivered to the building uses by energy measured at the output of the UPS that feeds the IT equipment.
