Napa Data Center Raises the Bar on Energy Efficiency Using ALC Energy Management System - 6/16/15
Sunbelt Controls’ work on the Napa Data Center stands out as a prime example of what a complex and comprehensive controls strategy can do for a mission critical facility. As noted in this Energy Manager Today article, Kaiser Permanente is seeing significant energy and cost savings, due in part to the ALC system designed and installed by the Sunbelt Controls project team.
“The data center facilities team looked to better quantify and improve the energy savings gained from implementing energy-efficient projects. The team identified the different stages of the air circulation/heat rejection cycle and used the data center’s Automatic Logic Controls (ALC) energy management system (EMS) to evaluate temperature quality degradation throughout the cycle. This data was collected into a unique computer room functional efficiency (CRFE) metric — allowing operators to optimize the heat removal cycle efficiency, identify problem spots precisely, and validate the benefits of efficiency measures. Using CRFE, Kaiser Permanente optimized the measures to the point where the efficiency projects paid for itself in less than two years.”
