Almost half of data centre owners do not intend to implement energy-saving targets, according to a new study from information and communications technology (ICT) industry consortium The Green Grid.

The research found that 43 per cent of respondents had no energy-efficiency targets for the design and operation of their data centres, while just under one in three companies could quantify their buildings’ environmental impact. However, this inaction is not born out of ignorance, as 97 per cent of those surveyed said they had identified areas for improving data centre monitoring, including energy efficiency.

This information tells us that although data centre managers are fully aware of the potential to save energy (and money), they do not have the time or resources to implement the necessary changes. This is understandable when you consider that managers are under pressure to deliver an uninterrupted service with a reliability target of 99.9999% in order to avoid paying compensation to clients. Energy efficiency simply isn’t at the top of their list.
That’s where Gibbons can help.

We enhance air handling equipment with the precision control of variable-speed drives, allowing clients to maximise energy efficiency while maintaining temperature and humidity to the tightest of margins.
