Energy Innovations and Efficiency
This Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) Case Study outlines possible energy efficiency improvements at three Federal data centers representing a broad cross section of the federal data center space. By leveraging known energy saving strategies, these three data centers could implement the recommended energy efficiency measures (EEMs) with an estimated payback of only approximately two years with cost savings upwards of $100,000 annually at each site.
This Case Study estimates the impact of energy efficiency measures under four distinct deployment scenarios at NOAA’s High Performance Computing data center. The study is unique in that it estimates the impact of both energy efficiency measures that have already been applied and new opportunities for improvement.
