Look Closer At Power Efficiency (Why 1% Matters)

1,096 views

Published on

Data centers use approximately 3% of all electricity generated in the US. When you talk efficiency, you have to understand total cost of ownership (TCO) and how even 1% gain saves you millions.

  9. 9. 96.5% A TCO evaluation of the OpEx costs of operating a UPS over 10 years creates an operational savings of $1.4 million when energy efficiency improves a single percent — from 93 to 94 percent efficiency. With newer UPS technologies that offer up to 96.5 percent efficiency, that savings jumps to almost $3.4 million. Therefore, a one percent gain in energy efficiency matters.

CapEx 93% Total cost of ownership (TCO), the sum of capital expenditures lCapEx) and operational expenditures (OpEx), is a critical metric to understanding true and long-term costs when designing a new facility or selecting equipment. Yet with the explosion of data center expansion, identifying TCO variables when specifying, building and operating a data center may be more elusive, costing companies millions of dollars every year.
