Self-benchmarking Guide (Datacenters)

This guide describes energy efficiency metrics and benchmarks that can be used to track the performance of and identify potential opportunities to reduce energy use of data center HVAC and electrical systems. This guide is primarily intended for personnel who have responsibility for managing energy use in existing data centers — including facilities managers, energy managers, and their engineering consultants. Additionally, data center designers may also use the metrics and benchmarks described in this guide for goal-setting in new construction or major renovation.
