HP Awarded National Environment Agency Contract to Benchmark Energy Consumption in Singapore Data Centers [Press Releases]
HP has been appointed by the National Environment Agency (NEA) to benchmark the energy consumption of Singapore’s data centers, as part of the Singapore Green Data Center Standard project. The benchmarking study will give insights to the energy performance of data centers in Singapore and establish a baseline to assess the energy and environmental performance of data centers here.
Besides traditional intensive energy consumers like buildings and transportation, data centers are also recognised as heavy users of energy, according to NEA. With growing demand for information and communications technology, data centers are becoming a significant source of energy consumption for corporations in Singapore, presenting a golden opportunity for energy cost reductions.
The benchmarking study is commissioned by the NEA and supported by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA). It is an initiative of the Energy Efficiency Programme Office (E2PO), and will ascertain the energy usage patterns and operating conditions of local data centers, evaluate current industry metrics, and identify areas for standardization and other data center issues.
