Small embedded data centers—your most overlooked opportunity for energy savings

Have you considered how much energy your small embedded data center (SEDC) consumes? SEDCs are estimated to account for nearly one percent of the total electricity use in the U.S. As much as one third of this usage is unnecessary, but most energy efficiency programs or IT service providers overlook it.

SEDCs are one of the fastest growing end uses of electrical energy in commercial buildings. This equipment consumes approximately 98 GWh annually at a cost to Wisconsin businesses of $10.7 million. Almost one third of this energy use is unnecessary and could be reduced through a range of IT measures and strategies, many of which are eligible for Focus on Energy incentives. We conducted a study to provide Focus on Energy a better understanding of number, type and efficiency level of SEDCs in Wisconsin. More
