You’ve heard a lot of talk about the deployment of the Smart Grid. Most of the initial smart grid deployments are focused on the de-ployment of smart meters that enable utilities to gather usage information in near real time — or what they call Automated Meter Infrastructure (AMI).
The application of energy recovery units allows for the ability to do total heat recovery and recover both sensible and latent heat from an exhaust air stream, using that heat to pre-condition outdoor air required for building ventilation.
Both new and existing building projects should have lighting control provided, either as part of a standalone system or, ideally, integrated as part of the BAS. But we often find that there are many reasons automated lighting control is not provided, ranging from simple economics to frustration with the programming and support of these systems.
Read about various examples — from a 40,000-sq-ft raised-floor environment to a 5,000-sq-ft facility within a facility — to get a good view of the battlefield and make your next campaign against heat and inefficiency a little smarter.
The range of HVAC design options associated with the various types of data centers has expanded and evolved over the past 30 years in order to keep pace with the wide array of server transformations and deployment strategies.
Don’t stop working to stay ahead while the industry catches up.

During the President’s recent State of the Union address, one of the key initiatives identified dealt with the issue of cybersecurity. This was supported by a new White House initiative focused on protecting critical infrastructure from attacks.
Retrieving every last bit of performance from the system while stopping short of the surge line is no small feat. Dig into sizing, tower selection, chilled water loads and stability, and condenser water management to leave no efficiency stone unturned. Read more in April issue
