(Fort Collins) Office Efficiency: Get Plugged In (Efficiency Works Training)
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

An Efficiency Works training . . . Learn how to take a holistic approach to IT, server rooms and cooling systems. Energy used from office equipment, computers, small IT servers and other electronics that keep businesses running-often referred to as plug loads-are the fastest growing sources of energy consumption. Find out how to determine strategies and support available to reduce these loads.

Office information technology (IT) and data center energy use is estimated to consume 3 percent of all electricity on the grid, and some experts project it to double every five years moving forward. Implementing energy efficiency measures to help address this growth are more important than ever—not only to mitigate energy demands, but also to improve data center reliability and redundancy.
Effectively communicating with sophisticated and risk-averse IT and facility leaders is critical to implementing efficiency measures in these facilities; when they understand how energy efficiency can help achieve unimpeded uptime and an improved bottom line, the benefits reach utilities, trade allies and customers alike.
With the many ways to conserve IT and data center energy, it is key to help IT and facility leaders understand where to begin. There is an interactive relationship between IT and electrical and cooling equipment, and a best practices approach to IT and data center efficiency provides those leaders with a road map to achieve the most significant and cost-effective savings.

Through case studies of large and small IT and data center projects, this presentation will demonstrate the significant results that are being achieved when this process is effectively communicated and implemented by IT and facility departments.

Approved for 1.5 LU/HSW for AIA CEUs.
