Data Center Sustainability Metrics and Standards
The economy and security of modern society is highly dependent on reliable, 7x24 availability of digital infrastructure. Over the past decade, demand has rapidly increased, resulting in a vast number of new data centers — the underpinning of digital services. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic increased digital dependency and demand, making infrastructure support a critical mandate.
As more facilities pop up, more concerns about climate change arise too, putting the spotlight on data centers and their energy and water consumption, carbon emissions, and overall sustainability.
In the U.S., there are multiple overlapping data center energy efficiency metrics and standards, such as ASHRAE, Energy Star, and The Green Grid, to name a few. While they are similar in their overall intent, they differ in their terminologies, methodologies, and applications.
This webinar will examine data center sustainability metrics and standards as well as related industry trends and practices that contribute to an environmentally conscious world.
- Identify the various organizations that create data center energy efficiency metrics and standards.
- Describe the fundamental concepts and functions of the metrics and standards used by ASHRAE, Energy Star, and The Green Grid.
- Explain how the metrics and standards of these organizations differ in their terminology, measurement methodology, and applicability.
- Infer how these metrics and standards impact the design and operation of data centers.
