Lessons Learned in Achieving Data Center Efficiency Goals – 3 Case Studies

04/08/2020

Today, data centers account for roughly 2 percent of the total U.S. electricity use, and national computational demand is expected to grow at a fast pace. Data center energy consumption can be reduced by 20 to
40 percent through proven, commercially available energy efficient technologies. Experts from Intuit, PayPal and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories who participate in the U.S. Department of
Energy’s Better Buildings Initiative will share their success stories in “Shaping the Future” of their data centers by using energy efficiency to lower energy bills, improve resiliency, and cut pollution.
