“Green” operation is a hot topic in today’s data center industry. Governments are concerned about high-energy consumption levels in data centers and companies have commitment to contribute to a better and cleaner environment. As a consequence, there have been a number of joint initiatives including the creation of the Energy Star Program, the Green Grid and the European Code of Conduct for data centers.

When looking at the energy consumption of a data center most losses are caused by the IT and cooling loads.
