The Data Center Frontier Presentations

  1. 1. femp.energy.gov1 US Data Center Energy Usage Reports (2007 & 2016) ~1.8% U.S. Electricity 45% Reduction Possible with Best Practices and greater shift to hyper-scale
  2. 2. femp.energy.gov2 Drivers: Executive Order 13693 and the Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) Specific federal goals for data centers: • Promote energy optimization, efficiency, and performance • Install/monitor advanced energy meters in all data centers by FY2018 - Active tracking of Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) • Establish PUE targets: 𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃 = 𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇 𝐷𝐷𝐷𝐷𝐷𝐷𝐷𝐷 𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶𝐶 𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹𝐹 𝐹𝐹 𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃 𝑜𝑜𝑜𝑜 𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸 𝐼𝐼 𝐼𝐼 𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸 𝐸𝐸 𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸 𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃𝑃 𝑜𝑜𝑜𝑜 𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸𝐸 - between 1.2 and 1.4 for new data centers - less than 1.5 for existing data centers • Option: close the data center (consolidate, move to the cloud) Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) is a measure of how efficiently a data center’snfrastructure uses energy.
