New York State Data Center Market Characterization

New York State has approximately 200,000 data center spaces, of which the majority are server closets. This in-depth survey report explored 32 different Energy Efficient Technologies and Best Practices (EETBPs) in IT, power infrastructure, air flow management, HVAC, and humidification. The report sought to determine if data center managers had implemented or planned to implement EETBPs and to assess the manager’s level of interest in EETBPs. IT EETBPs were most often implemented and data center managers and industry players also showed the most interest in IT EETBPs. The report showed higher available savings if implementation barriers could be overcome.
