Read this case study from EkkoSense. It explores how Three secured cooling energy savings across four sites of 200 kW against an initial 196 kW projection, representing a 12.5% data centre cooling energy saving in just ten weeks.
In order to help mitigate data centre energy costs, Three required its data centre operations teams to secure a 5% energy consumption reduction across its legacy data centre facilities. These facilities were all over 20 years’ old, and were already part of a programme of business transformation. However, the Three team also needed to make sure that the sites were able to run as cost-efficiently as possible.
The Three data centre operations team’s success in delivering against its 5% corporate energy savings target with this project has also gained significant interest from the broader Three business. The EkkoSense software-based approach to optimisation has already been demonstrated to the company’s Technology Services team, with the focus on showing how it’s possible to secure significant improvements in the energy consumption of legacy environments.
Like their data centre colleagues across the industry, operations teams are under continuous pressure to deliver energy savings to help meet corporate efficiency targets. By pursuing a software-enabled, AI-powered approach to performance optimisation, data centre teams can gather the real-time performance insights they need to ensure optimum performance – while also securing quantifiable energy savings from their operations.
That’s what Three, EkkoSense and CBRE have achieved at Three’s four UK legacy facilities, helping to not only optimise cooling and thermal performance but also to provide the real-time operational visibility needed to secure further energy savings going forward
