Data center design-build company, Data Specialties Inc (DSI), has announced the launch of its Data Center Energy Services Practice, which aims to provide data center owners and operators with more efficient and cost-effective facilities.
Globally, data centers use approximately 1.5 – 2 per cent of the world’s electricity, and according to several estimates, data center energy use will only increase, accounting for up to 13 per cent of global electricity use in the next decade. With numerous mandates on the horizon and many data center operators recognising the value of energy-efficient operations, implementing comprehensive efficiency solutions is top of mind.
Building off more than thirty years of building and designing data centers nationwide, and utilising its robust partner ecosystem, DSI says that its Data Center Energy Services Practice will provide data centers with comprehensive energy efficiency services by identifying facility and operational inefficiencies in enterprise and colocation operators. The new service offering will also guide end-users through the utility incentive and tax credit process.
The new energy services include a number of important metrics and measures which allow for better decision-making when it comes to sustainability. With consumers and other shareholders choosing to make an impact with their money investment, DSI says they can help put measures in place that are linked to Environmental Metrics in the ESG report.
Additional functionality includes an energy management system, energy audits and studies, energy conservation measure implementation and commissioning, carbon sequestration support, and assistance with utility incentives and tax credits.
“With a renewed focus on energy efficiency, as well as corporate sustainability initiatives and government mandates, our energy services practice will help improve data center operations, sustainability, and profitability,” said Phil Rafferty, President, Data Specialties Inc. “We look forward to working with our partners and customers to make data centers across the country more energy-efficient and cost-effective.”
