Center of Expertise for Energy Efficiency in Data Centers
“While information technology (IT) is improving the efficiency of government, energy use in data centers is growing at a significantly faster rate than any other building segment...”
The Department of Energy-led CENTER of EXPERTISE demonstrates national leadership in decreasing the energy use of data centers. The Center partners with key influential public and private stakeholders. It also supplies know-how, tools, best practices, analyses, and the introduction of technologies to assist Federal agencies with implementing policies and developing data center energy efficiency projects.
Program requires participating Federal agencies and other data center owners to establish an efficiency goal for their data centers, and to report and improve upon their performance through metrics such as Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).
LBNL and FEMP perform ongoing work with industry groups to assemble cost-effective, customer-friendly approaches to enable data center stakeholders to measure and manage the energy performance of their data center over time.
