A lightbulb moment for the data centre industry

Measuring the energy efficiency of a data center is challenging, since the true energy efficiency in engineering terms is what is required divided by what it costs, that being in terms of data centers digital services are required and it costs energy. Drawing an analogy from lighting, the incandescent light bulb has been banned in Europe since it was less than 1% energy efficient, since the light energy was less than 1/100th of the electrical energy.

The Boden Type Data Center project funded by the EU Commission’s Horizon 2020 Energy Efficiency program is now ready to run a very controlled test campaign for one year from 1st March 2019 to 29th February 2020 to address the project goal of being both cost and energy efficient. The data sets will be made available via an Open Research Data Project that will go live on the 31st March 2020.

The project goal is to create a pilot data center of an equivalent energy efficient lighting, but since data centers are complex systems, the proof in the Boden Type Data Center being energy efficient will be in the one year’s worth of server workload, electrical energy, thermal and environment data that will be collected combined with high level key performance indicator metrics.
