Examples; 10 of the 778 standard requirements:
- Has a Green Grid made progress in developing a unified productivity metric which measures overall productivity of our data center, not just its energy efficiency?
- Can the potential risks and expenses associated with using DC power in a data center be mitigated enough to make DC a truly viable data center power choice?
- As a consumer of data center equipment, how likely would a utility incentive program be in persuading you to purchase more efficient data center equipment?
- Have you ever had cooling problems due to lack of cooling capacity (indicated by not meeting the desired supply air or chilled water temperature setpoint)?
- Is economization (use of 100% outside air during low temperature periods to offset compressor based cooling operation) utilized for your data center?
- Are you standardized on external networked storage (FC/iSCSI/NAS) or do you have workloads that require only minimal levels of local storage?
- When purchasing new equipment, are server options similar enough that energy cost could become a component of the selection decision?
- Are CRAC (Computer Room Air Conditioner; stand-alone fan coil or split systems) units or air handlers utilized for the data center?
- Do non-load considerations, such as marketing or redundancy beyond N+1, dictate electrical infrastructure and HVAC equipment sizing?
- Would you be more interested in purchasing a power supply with higher efficiency if an incentive was offered by the local utility?
