Grants Available For Data Center Upgrades

The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) is offering grants to counties and others to make their data centers more energy efficient. MEA plans to make the awards in amounts of $20,000 to $200,000 per eligible project, subject to funding availability.

The FY 18 Data Center Energy Efficiency Grant Program exists to support implementation of cost-effective energy efficiency measures in information technology. Eligible efficiency measures include, but are not limited to, server virtualization; air flow optimization; aisle containment; lighting controls; uninterruptible power supplies (UPS); motors and variable frequency drives; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) upgrades; and building insulation and envelope improvements.

MEA will accept applications until 11:59 PM EST, November 2, 2017. Click here for more information and the electronic application.
