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…
