Benfield Quoted on Data Center Energy Consumption

26 October 2009 InsideCounsel News

Foley Partner and chair of the Environmental Regulation Practice Linda Benfield was quoted in an article titled “Powering Down” in the November 1, 2009 issue of InsideCounsel. Benfield discusses data center energy consumption, noting that data centers are going to become an issue as the carbon footprints of companies are more closely examined. She adds that from a consumer’s perspective, data center efficiency ratings won’t necessarily be helpful because several companies may use a single data center facility, but the data centers themselves will have to be very concerned about the standards if Congress passes federal legislation governing indirect emissions.
