Take a big stride to sustainable energy management
EnergySTEP 1 targets areas of inefficiency, uncovering opportunities for improvement that can be implemented straight away. Sometimes simple measures could help you reduce your facility PUE by as much as 20%. What’s more, EnergySTEP 1 includes recommendations that can also help better protect against system downtime.
Take the first step
EnergySTEP 1 is an entry level, onsite assessment of your datacentre IT space, infrastructure, systems and components. Performed by a trained energy expert, it’s the perfect solution to help you pick the “low hanging fruit” with the fastest and easiest energy savings potential.
EnergySTEP 1 includes a visual inspection of the datacentre, an analysis of the power protection systems (UPS and Batteries), cooling supply and airflow distribution. We’ll provide a customised report with recommendations to help you improve the efficiency of your datacentre, which you can discuss with an Energy Management Specialist in a follow-up meeting.
