Bob has been privileged to have conducted the world’s first NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System) energy for Data Centre Infrastructure rating back in 2013 which was for Fujitsu. Then in early 2016, he was privileged to have rated the first NABERS 4.5 star data centre, Australia’s most energy efficient data centre at the time, and since added two more. NABERS ratings are not a design rating, but rather an operational efficiency rating based on real results over a 12 month period.
