GLRPPR Sector Resource: Guide for Reducing Data Center Physical Infrastructure Energy Consumption in Federal Data Centers

Title:
Guide for Reducing Data Center Physical Infrastructure Energy Consumption in Federal Data Centers

Abstract:
In an effort to create a clean energy economy, recent U.S. presidents and congress have issued a series of legislation and executive orders requiring federal agencies to increase energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions in government facilities. Vivek Kundra, Federal Chief Information Officer, is supporting that effort by establishing a federal data center consolidation initiative to help reduce energy consumption in over 1,100 federal data centers. U.S. federal data center managers are on a timeline to respond with their final consolidation plan. This paper analyzes the implication of these mandates and offers recommendations for how to improve energy efficiency in federal data centers.
