Energy benchmarking offers a very effective way to evaluate the performance of a data center facility and compare it to similar facilities. Comparisons are a quick and easy way to identify poorly operating areas, which typically have the highest potential for economical modifications that reduce operating cost and/or increase the load capacity of a data center. Benchmarking is particularly valuable as a precursor to an expansion of a facility, because increases in system capacity and identification of best practice design approaches can be used to reduce the cost and increase the energy efficiency of new space.
This course is based on the document Self Benchmarking Guide For Data Center Energy Performance, Version 1.0, May 2006, Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
