Agenda
Agenda

  • Pilot Design

  • Pilot Objectives

  • Pilot Scope

    • Assessment

    • Customer Implementation

    • M&V

  • Questions


Afm pilot design
AFM Pilot Design

  • Scaled for small to medium-sized data centers

  • Typically focused on identification of a series of simple and low- or no-cost measures related to airflowand thermaloptimization

  • Implementation typically results in highersupply air temperature and reductions in airflow for improved energy efficiency

    • Reduce HVAC system airflow to match IT equipment airflow and higher supply air temperatures


Pilot objectives
Pilot Objectives

  • Savings-generating pilot

  • Identify & facilitate implementation of energy-focused airflow improvements in the data center

  • Pilot AFM approach and collect region-specific data

    • Test tools, protocols, and processes

  • Queue up airflow solutions for the utility environment


Pilot scope
Pilot Scope

  • 3 sites (commercial and/or industrial)

  • Comprehensive assessment of data center

  • Detailed energy savings report & suite of recommendations

  • Project implementation support

  • Follow-up verification of measures

  • Develop case study




Customer implementation
Customer Implementation

Turn off redundant CRACs

Remove airflow obstructions

Increase SATs

Rearrange servers

Add partitions

Install blanking panels

Move floor tiles

Plug holes in floor tiles

Coordinate humidity setpoints

Add VFDs to supply fans

Pilot Project Estimates:

Implementation Cost: $13,000

Simple Payback: 2.6 years


M v and project completion
M&V and Project Completion

  • End-Use Metering Protocol

    • Aligned with IPMVP Option B
