SprayCool™ Sponsors Workshop on EPA's Data Center Energy Efficiency Study

SprayCool™ Has the Solutions for an Industry-Wide Problem: Hot Data Centers

LIBERTY LAKE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 14, 2007 -- Solidifying its role as an industry leader in solving complex thermal problems experienced by data centers, SprayCool™ is sponsoring the Environmental Protection Agency's workshop on how to improve energy efficiency among data centers, as well as the equipment they hold.

To meet the requirements of legislation from Public Law 109-431, Dec. 20, 2006, the EPA Energy Star program is working with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to:

--  Estimate how much energy use will increase, in the near term, among
    computer servers and data centers nationwide.
--  Project how much money and energy could be saved with efficiency
--  Recommend incentives and voluntary programs that could encourage the
    use of energy efficient computer servers and data centers.
To help in this effort, the EPA is hosting a workshop titled the "EPA Technical Workshop on Energy Efficient Servers and Datacenters in the U.S." Feb. 16 in Santa Clara, Calif. Industry stakeholders, including SprayCool, were invited to help explore the technical issues of the study, which is due to Congress in June.

"We are thrilled to sponsor the EPA's workshop on increasing energy efficiency among data centers and computer servers," said Patchen Noelke, SprayCool's director of marketing. "SprayCool has the solutions that the EPA, as well as companies nationwide, are looking for -- a more affordable and eco-friendly way to cool data centers."

Other workshop sponsors include HP, APC, Emerson Network Power, VMWare and Intel.

The SprayCool system uses a fine mist of non-toxic and non-electrically conductive liquid, which is sprayed in a thin layer and evaporates to cool electronics. Thanks to SprayCool's system solutions, companies can dramatically conserve energy by cooling more servers without increasing the power load.

For example, using SprayCool solutions to cool the servers in a conventional datacenter can reduce total facility power consumption by 25 percent or more -- a power savings that can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, for even a small datacenter. In addition, the M-Series cooling system is extremely power efficient, requiring less than 200 watts per rack.
