Data centers are prime targets for energy-efficiency retrofits. They are very energy-intensive spaces with power consumption of up to 60 watts per square foot compared to 5 watts per square foot for a typical office building. In addition, data centers do not shut down at night or on weekends like other spaces. Finally, supporting mechanical and electrical systems are often overlooked and aren’t optimized for the current load in the space.
