A Host of Energy-Saving Solutions
Technology companies and data centers have energy-intensive operations that can realize big savings and fast paybacks from energy-saving investments. Energize Connecticut helps you tap the power of energy efficiency and renewable energy with expert advice, resources and energy-saving programs tailored to your needs.
Data center energy use is growing rapidly as servers become more robust and energy intensive1. Though small on-premise data centers house the majority of servers, the general trend is toward consolidation into increasingly larger facilities. With more servers being packed into tight spaces, energy use for cooling is increasing. While today’s data centers are highly optimized systems compared with early server rooms, considerable efficiency and conservation opportunities still exist in most facilities. Renewable energy systems, like solar PV or solar hot water, are cutting-edge technologies that can lower and stabilize your energy costs and help you achieve important environmental objectives.
