SS564:2013 - Green Data Centre - Energy & Environment Management System

The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) has partnered with other government agencies to develop a Singapore Standard for Green Data Centres. The purpose of the standard is to help data centres reduce their energy consumption which in turn results to a reduction in their operating costs.


The standard helps data centres in establishing systems and processes to improve their energy efficiency. SS 564 standard provides a recognized framework as well as a logical and consistent methodology to achieve continual improvement in their energy performance.  The standard is modeled after ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management System standard, however, it is specifically tailored to meet the requirements of data centres in Singapore. 

Benefits of SS564:

  •    Lower operating costs due to a reduction in annual utilities bill
  •    Reduction in power consumption by ICT equipment despite increase in ICT workload
  •    Exercising corporate social responsibility (CSR) by contributing to the conservation of natural resources
