USGBC considering LEED for Data Centers program
In a blog post this morning on Earth2Tech, Justin Moresco writes that the U.S. Green Building Council is giving strong consideration to developing a version of its LEED green building rating system for data centers.
Moresco writes: "While LEED rating systems currently can be used to certify data centers—or almost any other building for that matter—none of LEED’s systems take into account the special circumstances of those dedicated to computing power. That means the criteria often are inadequate."
He says USGBC's VP for technical development Brendan Owens is in talks with several groups that have been working to set benchmarks for green data centers.
