Electric-car road-trip offers powerfully clear explanation of energy savings
COLUMBUS, Ohio [January 15, 2013] – Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure, today released the infographic “How far can your data center energy savings take you?” to demonstrate the savings made possible by the Energy Logic 2.0 roadmap. Recognizing that kilowatts can feel abstract, the company developed the infographic to translate kW into measures of distance – miles and kilometers – plotted out on a round-the-world road-trip.
Imagine taking the energy saved in an eight-hour day in a data center using Energy Logic 2.0 strategies and using that energy to power an electric car. How far could the electric car go? The new, animated infographic shows how far each Energy Logic 2.0 strategy would take you.
“Energy efficiency remains a priority, and this infographic makes what it means to use the Energy Logic 2.0 strategies tangible,” said Jack Pouchet, vice president of business development and director of energy initiatives for Emerson Network Power. “Given the technology advances in recent years, the time is now for data centers managers to look seriously at reducing overall energy consumption.”
Energy Logic 2.0 is a roadmap for driving dramatic reductions in energy consumption without risk to performance. The roadmap comprises ten strategies that start with low-power components and end with Data Center Infrastructure Management. The strategies produce a cascade effect, through which savings at the IT component level are magnified in the supporting systems, supporting an overall approach that focuses on optimizing the efficiency of core IT systems to drive the greatest savings.
