  • So the energy equation is very simple and very complex to solve. At minimum, energy consumption, including electricity and other sources, will double in the next 40 years. Electricity itself will double by 2030. At the same time, climate specialists tell us we should divide emissions by 2 to avoid serious climatic changes. In other terms, the world needs to improve its carbon intensity by a factor of 4. This means the developed world, the US, Europe, the Eastern seaboard of China will have to save energy. Mobilization on climate change world wide By 2030, ~3/4 of energy sources will remain CO2-related Grave consequences expected if global temperature rises by 3°c (based on International Energy Agency quotes and studies Important need for reliable energy Cost of 1 hour downtime = up to $10 million (depending on the industries) Green energy is a must and an opportunity Share of renewable in energy mix could double in the next 20 years ( based on both IEA and Department of Energy (DOE), USA)
  • Increasing cost of energy, electricity. Forecast for managing the increase. $150 per barrel costs Mitigation of overall aggregate increases, as an industry how do we respond
  • . The Government is coming to HELP
  • Portfolio manager required for these jurisdictions, enabling utility rebates (taxes or costs) almost always require DC Pro supporting data. Also rebate money is targeted at high performers not updating data center to current code.
  • You will need to minimally use DC Pro, high performers will use the DCMM, and bounce between
  • You can not do this with anonyminity
  • [This slide is a placeholder for a live profiling tool demonstration.] Step 5 is to view the results calculated and displayed by the profiling tool. This is your customized DC Pro Summary Report which can be exported to PDF by clicking on the link at the top of the page. The report is broken into five basic sections. Case Information Annual Energy Use Potential Annual Energy Savings and PUE Benchmarking Potential Annual CO2 Savings Suggested Next Steps The first section of the DC Pro contains information regarding you “ Annual Energy Use. ” This data presents the information you entered as the average cost per unit energy and cost per unit produced. If you wish to go back and edit any of your values or add more data click the previous button at the top of the page to navigate to the desired screen.
  • [This slide is a placeholder for a live profiling tool demonstration.] Both the site and source energy usage breakouts are reported and PUE for each estimate is shown. Annual energy end-use breakouts are also displayed in pie charts for both the current data center and the potential case after the recommended retrofit actions are implemented. The PUE is benchmarked for both the existing and potential cases. The current PUE is 1.73 (58% of the data center annual energy goes to running the IT equipment) and can be potentially improved to 1.11 (90.1% of the data center annual energy goes to running the IT equipment).
  • TGG Contributed TGG Colocated Training, generating almost 200 practitioners in one year
  • TGG Training available in a few weeks
  • You can remain anonymous at this point, if they choose to release data More robust, from data center owner operators
  • IT Gear is good, homework on facility Here is our own personal business case
  • Compare against other anonymous facilities, or two different data centers the customer owns
  • Hot Humid versus Cool and Dry
  • Considered all constituents, what is reasonable for completing amd improving

    • 3. The facts The need vs Energy demand CO2 emissions to By 2050 avoid dramatic climate Electricity by 2030 changes by 2050 Source: IEA 2007 Source: IPCC 2007, figure (vs. 1990 level) Conflicts for Frequent Rising Climate change resource accesspower outages energy prices & control
    • 4. Green GridWhite Paper#44 on EMEAData CenterEnergy Policy
    • 5. Used withPermission from the US EPA
    • 6.  US EPA Energy Star Data Center Rating System ◦ Portfolio Manager US DOE Data Center Energy Practitioner Program ◦ DC Pro The Green Grid ◦ Data Center Maturity Model ◦ PUE Reporting On-line Tool Establish your baseline with an assessment and then manage with DCIM
    • 7.  Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) = Total Energy / UPS Energy PUE is based on energy, not power PUE is based on source energy, not site energy ◦ Results in equitable comparisons for buildings with different fuel types utilized ◦ For a 100% electric building, the use of source energy will not change PUE Compare actual PUE to predicted PUE ◦ More efficient data centers will have lower PUE than is predicted Express data center efficiency as a 1-to-100 ENERGY STAR rating ◦ Each point on scale equals 1 percentile of data centers 8
    • 8.  Free, online benchmarking tool The industry standard in commercial real estate Track changes in energy, water, GHG emissions over time within a single building or entire portfolio Understood and used by many owners, management companies, local governments, potential buyers and lenders Learn more: www.energystar.gov/benchmark 9
    • 9. General Space Energy• Address: city, state, zip •Gross Floor Area •IT Energy Use code • Must not include •IT Energy Configuration any non-IT loads• Year built • Must be energy, •Optional not power • IT Equipment • 12 consecutive Redundancy months of energy • Cooling Equipment data measured at Redundancy UPS Output (PDU input accepted) •Utility Bills • 12 consecutive months of whole building energy use for all fuels used in building 10
    • 10.  Many people incorrectly classifying spaces such as server closets as “data center” Few operators measuring IT energy use Many users not able to separate IT energy use from non-IT load Some users calculating energy use from spot power measurements Some users taking measurements at locations other than those required. 11
    • 11. ENERGY STAR Certification forCommercial Buildings  Recognition for top energy performance of commercial buildings  Over 16,800 buildings have earned the ENERGY STAR (through Jan. 2012)  Professional Engineer or Registered Architect must certify Superior Energy application Management! National Average 1 50 75 100 1 to 100 Energy Performance Scale 12

    • 13. Compare your data center topeers globally based on:•construction type•environmental conditions•primary purpose•age•DCMM targets•etc.
    • 14. Choose what is best for you! US EPA Energy Star ◦ For self improvement ◦ Varied state and municipality compliance ◦ Recognition as an Energy Star Rated Facility US DOE ◦ US DOE Certified Data Center Assessors ◦ Comprehensive tools, training and standards ◦ Track progress against specific targets The Green Grid DCMM ◦ Self improvement and global comparisons ◦ Track targets against business objectives and energy targets ◦ Simple, intuitive and translates technical language for senior management reporting
