Over the past few years, the authors benchmarked 22 data center buildings. From this effort, we have determined that data centers can be over 40 times as energy intensive as conventional office buildings. Studying the more efficient of these facilities enabled us to compile a set of “best-practice” technologies for energy efficiency. These best practices include: improved air management, emphasizing control and isolation of hot and cold air streams; rightsizing central plants and ventilation…

The environmental footprint of data centers in the United States
Much of the world’s data are stored, managed, and distributed by data centers. Data centers require a tremendous amount of energy to operate, accounting for around 1.8% of electricity use in the
Effect of warm water cooling for an isolated hybrid liquid cooled server
Data center cooling strategies have changed overtime due to increases in power densities and server cooling power requirement. Traditionally, most data centers adopt air cooling where the computer

TLDR
The power consumption recorded by smart meters from a small data center is examined, and the limitations and potential for small data centers participating in DR programs are identified.
A novel approach to the data center hybrid cooling design with containment
ABSTRACT Hybrid cooling solutions, which consist of the installation of heat exchangers near IT equipment, aim to eliminate hot spots in data centers containing high-density computer cabinets. In
Exploring the Potential Benefits of Demand Response in Small Data Centers
Demand Response (DR) is often regarded as the killer application of the emerging smart grid. Recently, the rapidly growing Internet population aggrandizes the size and the number of data centers. The
Development of an energy evaluation and design tool for dedicated cooling systems of data centers: Sensing data center cooling energy efficiency
Abstract Data centers are approximately 50 times more energy-intensive than conventional office buildings, where ICT equipment consumes about 50% of total electricity and cooling energy is roughly
Improving energy efficiency of dedicated cooling system and its contribution towards meeting an energy-optimized data center
Data centers are approximately 50 times more energy-intensive than general buildings. The rapidly increasing energy demand for data center operation has motivated efforts to better understand data
Transient simulation of wet cooling strategies for a data center in worldwide climate zones
Abstract A promising way to significantly reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a data center is to minimize the cooling system energy consumption. To come up with the most energy efficient
A review of thermal management and innovative cooling strategies for data center
TLDR
A review on thermal management in data centers and various potential cooling technologies developed respecting energy saving constraint, which includes free cooling, liquid cooling, two-phase technologies and building envelope is presented.
