Presented by

Dale Sartor, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

About this talk

Save Energy Now in Data Centers, A Case Study at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Mr. Dale Sartor from the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) specializes in the energy efficiency of buildings for high-tech industries. He will describe trends and issues relative to energy consumption in data centers, and will focus his talk on lessons learned improving the efficiency of LBNL’s own data centers. LBNL has benchmarked dozens of data centers. The results of that benchmarking, as well as high level performances metrics and tools will be presented. Further benchmarking helps identify opportunities and best practices. The best practices adopted at LBNL will be described. Topics will include: air management, right sizing, plant optimization, liquid cooling, “free” cooling, humidity control, the electrical power chain, and design and operational practices. Finally Mr. Sartor will describe some of the resources available to improve energy efficiency in data centers.
