Seattle, WA, June 20, 2017 – Sabey Data Centers announced today that the federal Department of Energy (DOE) has recognized the company as the data center operator that achieved the highest level of energy savings in the Department’s 2017 Better Buildings Progress Report.
The citation by the DOE was presented last month in Washington, D.C. at the agency’s 2017 Better Buildings Summit trade conference. The Better Buildings Challenge enrolls enterprise “partners” across a broad spectrum of industry sectors. In the program, DOE challenges companies to showcase solutions to cut energy intensity in their buildings portfolio-wide by 20% over a 10-year period.
Sabey Data Centers was noted not only for having achieved its goals in 2016, but also for having the highest percentage of savings so far of all data center operators enrolled in the Better Buildings Challenge program. Second and third highest savers were eBay and Digital Realty Trust, respectively – two of the largest data center operators in the world.
Rob Rockwood, President, Sabey Data Centers, said, “To be cited as a company that has a proven approach to significant energy savings is a great honor. It’s also a testament to our operations staff’s everyday commitment to energy efficiency and the eagerness on our customers’ part to embrace these practices.”
The DOE also highlighted Sabey Data Centers’ Intergate.Quincy facility in Washington State as a “Leadership in Action” model for the industry. At the Summit, the DOE stated: “Sabey Data Center Properties has demonstrated that high efficiency design can be applied effectively in co-located data center spaces by achieving 41% savings at the multi-tenant Intergate.Quincy facility.”
