Energy Efficient Data Center Design

This is the question asked by Deerns Consulting Engineers’ white paper published in the fall of 2011. The white paper addresses key issues associated with energy optimization of data centers, with an emphasis on implementing cost-savings solutions. “Based on Deerns’ experience, energy savings of 15-35% with a payback time of less than one year are feasible, even for very efficient facilities,” cites the paper. What they know can help companies excel at creating reliable data centers while reducing costs associated with energy bills – and who doesn’t want cost savings?

According to Deerns’ paper, now is the right time to upgrade your data center facility. There are a number of nationwide rebate programs from utility companies, municipalities and state and federal grants that companies can leverage. While many data centers have already taken advantage of these incentives, Deerns can help you do so too – while they are still in play. So how do they reduce your energy consumption?

The highly experienced global engineering team at Deerns does a comprehensive site scan to review and assess all energy consuming liabilities. This information is then analyzed against historical and current bills and consumption levels. They then benchmark the associated costs against other like-type facilities to ultimately identify opportunities for improved energy efficiency. The ultimate savings in indicated in a calculation of costs and benefit of each energy conservation opportunity (ECO).

Data Center Energy Audits aren’t new – but they are ripe and with an almost guaranteed cost savings of 15-35% on your energy consumption – thus cost savings – there’s nothing to lose, except payments on unneeded energy use.
