 KPIs

  • Energy consumption
  • Task efficiency
  • Energy reuse
  • Renewable energy
System(s) covered by the methodology

Data centres or operator sites (ICT node operations)

Goals
  • Improving energy usage and efficiency of an ICT node through a reduction in energy consumption, improvements in task efficiency, the re-use of energy and the contribution of renewable energy
  • Providing methodological framework for the definition and calculation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) in relation to the objectives described above (one global indicator + 4 objective indicators)
Generic features
  • The indicators apply to systems of any size from initial operation to end of life
  • The reduction in energy consumption and task efficiency are primary objectives
  • Energy sources may be utility (from the grid), fossil or renewable local power sources, hydrothermal energy or aeraulics power source.
  • The definition of task efficiency should specify the difference with “Power Usage Effectiveness” if relevant
ICT-specific features

The indicators apply to any buildings containing IT rooms, technical infrastructure and spaces required for proper operation of the data centre. Buildings containing offices for on-site employees are excluded.
