The global pandemic will not be the only life-altering crisis the world will recount during 2020. According to the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations in terms of climate change, 2020 was the hottest year on record. Data center growth in the US alone is forecasted for 13.8% in 2021 and the data center industry carbon footprint continues to rise expected to account for one-fifth of all carbon emissions by 2030. In a time when how the world conducts business has drastically changed and the growth of technologies such as online meeting platforms has become essential connectivity is a central concern for end-users worldwide. Low latency and instantaneous communication, coupled with rising demand and the need for data center growth, have changed the way the data centers need to operate. With nearly 40% of data center cost going to cooling power a recent analysis conducted by a European engineering firm uncovered potential worldwide cooling energy savings over $1.7 billion and even more promising carbon emission reduction of 3.7 million tons are achievable! Solutions such as airflow management, optimization, artificial intelligence, machine learning, microgrids, renewable energy, virtual power, and new cooling technologies, are allowing data center owners and operators to account for every single watt of power entering their facility and in turn safely squeezing out every drop of efficiency possible! Becoming energy efficient and sustainable makes commercial sense as much as it does environmentally! Measure, manage, record, adjust, and recycle!
