Technical Facility Climate Optimization Methodology

This Operational Practice is to be used by facility managers and facility design engineers to improve air flow and climate conditions in network centers. This document outlines the basic steps to conduct an assessment of the facilities existing energy efficiency and climate conditions. Recommended actions to improve air flow conditions and environmental conditions are included along with factors to consider in moving to more advanced cooling technologies such as air side and water side economizers. The document is based on industry best practices from sources such as ASHRAE, Green Grid and EU 2015 Code of Conduct.
