Welcome to Think 8760.
This site is dedicated to promoting Energy Efficiency in Data Centers,
Networks and throughout the entire computing infrastructure.
Thinking 8760 means making
strategic IT and Facilites management decisions, based on the precept
that every Kilowatt of computing related load saved (or wasted) equals 8,760 KWH per year or 26 Megawatt Hours over 3 years
In a data center with a PUE of 2.0 (the average according to the 2009 EPA's Energy Star for Data Centers study), an equal amount of energy will be expended for the supporting power and cooling infrastructure. For a data center with a one Megawatt IT equipment load, a 10%overall energy savingswill equal 200 KW-providing an annual savings of
1,752 MWH per year.
