Emerson Network Power Introduces Energy Logic 2.0 and the Cascading Savings Calculator

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure, today introduced Energy Logic 2.0, a vendor-neutral roadmap of 10 strategies that can reduce a data center’s energy use by up to 74 percent. The approach, detailed in a new e-book, updates the original Energy Logic, introduced in 2007, to incorporate the advances in technology and best practices that have emerged in the past five years. The company also launched the Energy Logic 2.0 Cascading Savings Calculator, an online tool that allows data center managers to calculate the approximate energy savings they would capture by employing strategies in the updated approach.

With the inclusion of new technologies and best practices, Energy Logic 2.0 illustrates how the energy consumption of a 5,000 square-foot data center could be cut by up to 74 percent using available technologies. It accomplishes this by leveraging the cascade effect, the cornerstone of the Energy Logic approach.

The cascade effect quantifies how savings at the IT component level are magnified in the supporting systems, recommending an overall approach that focuses on optimizing the efficiency of core IT systems to drive the greatest savings. In a data center with a PUE of 1.9, a 1 W savings at the server processor creates a 2.84 W savings at the facility level as a result of the cascade effect. At higher PUEs, the savings is even greater.
