By focussing on the trade offs between mechanical load and electrical losses as a means to ensure energy efficiency, ASHRAE’s new Energy Standard for data centres is paving the way for industry best practices and a standards-based approach to data centre design.
The data centre industry understands that PUE is not perfect. However, it does provide a simple and practical matrix for measuring relative efficiency of power use inside the data centre.

To optimise energy usage, a holistic approach to temperature management is required taking into consideration all of the various cooling equipment deployed, ambient climate, the size of the load and the operation of the IT equipment itself.
IT is a mission-critical element of any modern business, which demands no compromise on availability or performance. It is also essential for any competitive organisation to be efficient within its operation.
Energy efficiency has become a key consideration when designing and fitting out a data centre.
The primary function of a UPS system is to guarantee the power supply to its load in the event of a loss or interruption to mains power. All other considerations are secondary.
