Gartner: Green Grid Has Potential, But Don’t Hold Your Breath
Gartner Inc. has criticized The Green Grid, an environmental consortium, saying it misses a greater opportunity to influence legislation and behavior for broader green issues, Computerworld reports. Gartner suggested that member self-interest may prevent the group from delivering tangible standards.
The Gartner report, titled “The Green Grid: A Paler Shade Of Green,” states that The Green Grid “has the potential to deliver some new standards that will benefit the industry, but don’t hold your breath.”
According to the article, Gartner raises several criticisms about The Green Grid in its report. Among them:
- There is no specific timeline for The Green Grid’s deliverables.
- It needs more user organizations to be members to balance the strong vendor membership.
- Vendors will develop proprietary technologies to enhance their greenness and won’t want to share these with other members, limiting the effectiveness of the group.
