The mandatory deployment of IoT technology and faster internet speeds across industry sectors have intensified the need for fiscally effective and sustainable energy efficiency improvements in the data centers for telecommunications and broadband industries. Minimal growth of utility demand footprint, leveraged against exponentially expanding infrastructure and connections, has driven the necessity for energy efficiency and system optimization to reduce operational "drag" on the business.
US Cellular engaged the local electric utility's Telecom Energy Efficiency Program to deliver significant savings in their Chicago data center. This session will go through the process utilized to identify the data center energy conservation measures, analysis to predict the energy savings, project scope and details, measurement & verification, results, and next steps.
Energy savings from the 5 completed projects spanning 18 months has realized annual energy savings over 4,000,000 kWh with utility cash incentives totaling over $500,000. The projects include network infrastructure, airflow management, free cooling optimization, and power system upgrades.

Takeaway

• 5 project case studies and lessons learned.
• Detailed energy calculations for predicting energy savings.
• Measurement and verification details for proving energy savings results.
• Energy analysis graphs to demonstrate impacts and savings results.
• Utility cash incentives obtained for each project.
