Accelerating Energy Efficiency in Indian Data Centers: Phase II Final Report


This report documents Phase II of the “Accelerating Energy Efficiency in Indian Data Centers” initiative, which built on Phase I findings related to international best practices and how existing energy efficiency standards in India could address data centers. The Indian standards central to Phase II were the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC), which is Prescriptive or Performance Based (Mandatory Code); and the Perform, Achieve & Trade (PAT) market-based scheme in which BEE sets sector-specific benchmarks and gives targets to Designated Consumers (DC).
