ASHRAE has announced that a proposed energy standard specifically aimed at energy use in data centers and telecommunications buildings is open for public comment. ASHRAE Standard 90.4P, Energy Standard for Data Centers and Telecommunications Buildings, is open for its first public review until March 30, 2015.
ASHRAE is committed to improving the efficiency of the built environment. That commitment is best exhibited through ASHRAE’s standards, which, through constant improvement, continue to raise the bar for building efficiency.
