Estimating Total Power Used By Data Centers in California

12/01/2005

This study estimates total power use for such facilities, focusing mainly on California. We begin by summarizing what is known about total floor area for these facilities, and then analyzing the power densities associated with this floor area. Total power use is then the total floor area times the power densities. Author(s): Koomey, J., O. Sezgen, and R. Steinmetz.
