Critical Power: Electrical systems and data center efficiency
Whether producing, consuming, or measuring and verifying (M&V), electrical systems play an important role in data center energy efficiency. When it comes to data center electrical efficiency, all sources of energy use in the facility must be considered. In addition to the computers and servers, data center infrastructure includes both mechanical and electrical components—all of which “consume” energy and affect electrical efficiency.
