SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA- August 4, 2022 – Data Center Efficiency Evolution Program (DEEP), a program that assesses and certifies a data center’s sustainability, is pleased to announce that Andrew Fanara has joined DEEP as head of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development. Fanara’s expertise in sustainability, technology and data centers will offer operators a climate-conscious approach to running data centers. Fanara brings to this role 10 years of experience with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), where he worked closely with the data center industry to develop and implement the ENERGY STAR certification for data center equipment, in addition to other residential and commercial products.

“Andrew has been an advocate for DEEP from the moment of introduction,” adds Liz Cruz, Director of Data Center Programs at Informa. “We are excited to have his passion, expertise, and collaborative nature to support the widespread adoption of DEEP as the new standard in data center efficiency. We are eager for Andrew to share his perspective on what it means to run data centers in a world with an immediate need for climate action.”

“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Informa on the DEEP program,” comments Andrew Fanara. “I genuinely believe DEEP could be a game changer for the industry, and look forward to working with, advising and supporting the data center industry with long-term, sustainable initiatives that will matter today – and tomorrow.”

Informa launched the DEEP program in March 2022, and has already been adopted by progressive colocation and enterprise businesses including Bluebird Network, DC BLOX, Digital Fortress and others. Bringing in a data center sustainability veteran to lead its efforts sets the program apart from other sustainability certification organizations such as LEED. DEEP’s goal is to set the standard for data center sustainability.
