Estimates show that data center spaces can consume up to 100-200 times as much electricity as standard office spaces. With that large amount of power being used by a growing number of data centers, the pressure is on to implement energy-efficient design measures that can save money and reduce electricity use.
ASHRAE recently created Standard 90.4-2016, “Energy Standard for Data Centers.”
...Manufacturers are offering many different types of cooling equipment that consume much less energy. Computer room evaporative cooling [CREC]...helps lower the power usage effectiveness [PUE] by shifting some of the electrical consumption of a typical data center for the cooling infrastructure to IT [information technology] power consumption, which helps to make the data center more efficient...”
