How do you measure air conditioning efficiency?

The energy efficiency of a computer or server room air conditioning unit is measured using the Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). EER is a ratio of the cooling capacity measured in British Thermal Units (Btu) compared to the power input in Watts. The higher the EER, the more energy efficient the air conditioner.

What does PUE measure?

PUE standards for Power Usage Effectiveness and measures the energy efficiency of a server room or datacentre. PUE = Total Facility Energy / IT Equipment Energy The reciprocal measure of PUE is Data Center infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE) DCIE = IT Equipment Power / Total Facility Power x 100% PUE and DCiE were developed by the […]

Do you charge for energy efficiency audits?

We do not charge for an energy efficiency audit, if we can easily book the review into the diaries of our project managers. If a client requests an outside-working-hours audit or one that will involve us traveling over 250miles, we may have to make a special booking and will quote a reasonable price for this.

What Is Demand Side Energy Management?

When we look at a server room or datacentre in terms of energy efficiency, we are looking at loads on the demand-side of the electricity distribution infrastructure. Related terms include Demand Side Management (DSM) and Demand Side Response (DSR). Our objective is to find ways to improve the overall energy efficiency of the facility through […]
