The recent release of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) study on data center energy efficiency is adding fuel to the fire in the research and development of new ways to reduce energy use in centers. The findings, summarized on the EPA website, are staggering: Data centers consumed about 60 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2006, roughly 1.5 percent of total US electricity consumption -Energy consumption of servers and data centers has doubled in the past five years and is expected to almost double again in the next five years to more than 100 billion kWh, costing about $7.4 billion annually.
As data center costs continue to rise, green is the word of the day. What it means is cost savings through consolidation and lower energy usage, as this white paper shows. See the role energy consumption plays in today's data centers, and how IBM Tivoli solutions can help optimize energy use in the data center.

Regulations have been established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce the release of mercury into the environment and to encourage proper recycling. Protecting the health and safety of employees through proper and documented recycling programs, reduces liability of your company and are important considerations when selecting a recycling solution.
This paper covers the essential elements for safely recycling fluorescent lamps including the dangers of mercury and exposure; the state and federal regulatory agencies which regulate mercury exposure; the crushed lamp recycling process.
“Defendant shall … develop a compliance-based Environmental Management System.” With words like these, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) frequently mandates that organizations implement an Environmental Management System (EMS) to promote regulatory compliance and curb future environmental impact.
This White Paper explores EPA’s commitment to EMS’s, describes the essential elements of an EMS, and explores the importance of information management systems in implementing and maintaining an EMS.
