In typical computer centers you can feel the energy consumption from racks of servers radiating heat, while icy air blows through the room to cool them. NREL’s fully contained hot and cold aisle data center configuration minimizes this problem. The configuration includes effective air-side economizer cooling with an evaporative boost when needed.
McGraw Hill Construction Continuing Education Article December 2010 - This article discusses the energy efficiency and cost competitiveness of the Research Support Facility.
This handbook targets two primary areas for creating energy-efficient buildings: (1) How to interpret energy data to improve efficiency and performance; (2) How to use computation and programming to combine the use of spreadsheet or programmable analysis tools with data from on-site meter and sensor acquisition systems. The primary audience for this handbook is commercial building owners, energy and facility managers, financial managers, and operators with little to no experience in data analysis and performance monitoring. The secondary audience is software developers and energy service providers in the commercial building industry, as well as more experienced owners and managers who wish to improve how they visualize, analyze, and manage their building’s energy use.
