Many regional business policy initiatives are trying to meet carbon reduction targets through increased efficiency measures through reduction in consumption, increased process efficiency and towards sustainability. This course addresses all these influencing factors against the need of individual data centres (DC) meeting their business risk requirements. Therefore, energy and resource consumption are increasingly important for DC operations.

The course focuses on key considerations for near and long-term target measures for DC energy efficiency enablement, alongside operation and design strategies that help maximise program impacts and increase cost effectiveness. Spanning the entire spectrum of the DC; Information Technology (IT) systems, air management and mechanical and electrical systems, on-site generation, metrics and benchmarking, this course offers strategies which provide efficiency benefits for a wide variety of DC scenarios in many climates and especially in Singapore.
