Emerson Network Power’s Energy Logic 2.0
Today I found myself completely engulfed by Emerson Network Power’s “e-book” White Paper presenting their Energy Logic 2.0. Well presented in a PowerPoint style, yet with interactive links out to YouTube to keep my interest, I knew I had to share this information with our community.
Energy Logic 2.0 helps data center managers combat the ever-rising energy consumption with methods to optimize power, cooling and space. The base 5,000 square-foot data center modeled in 2007 has experienced a 37 percent increase in energy consumption due to increases in server power consumption. Learn how this data center can be reduced from 1,543kW to 408kW in this interest tutorial. That’s a reduction of 74 percent!
The key takeaway from Energy Logic is the “cascade effect”, which demonstrates that a 1 Watt savings at the processor level produces a 2.84 Watt savings at the facility level. One of my favorite discoveries: ENP offers this Energy Logic 2.0 Cascading Savings Calculator where you can explore the impact Energy Logic 2.0 strategies might have on your facility.
