Proposed ASHRAE rule to improve communication about energy consumption, forecasts

High voltage power lines

A standard designed to provide a new way for energy consumers in facilities to describe, manage, and communicate about electrical consumption and forecasts has been proposed by ASHRAE and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association. ASHRAE/NEMA Standard 201P, Facility Smart Grid Information Model will create an object-oriented information model that allows building control systems and appliances to manage electrical loads and generation sources while communicating with a smart electrical grid.

The standard defines afacility as any building or group of buildings and all the electrical loads and energy generation sources controlled by the building owner or manager. Additionally, the new rule will also coordinate with the North American Energy Standards Board’s basic energy usage data model standard, commonly known as Green Button. To read the full draft of the standard or submit comments, visit ASHRAE’s website.

Surpass State Energy Requirements with Dual-Cooling Data Center CRAC Technology

See how professionals like you are taking advantage of the highest performing precision cooling system for their computer rooms and data centers, and why Data Aire is fast-becoming the number one choice for facility managers and building owners looking to decrease their energy consumption. 

Data Aire understands how digital technology and data gravity is rapidly impacting and transforming businesses. That’s why they developed ultra-efficient cooling technology to support the most modern (and not-so-modern) data centers.  Learn how One Wilshire in Los Angeles, one of the most advanced carrier hotels today, is surpassing California's strict energy efficiency requirements with Data Aire’s purpose-built system, which provide full-economization for 260 days – almost 72% of the year. That’s a measurable savings! Furthermore, the projected PUE on an annual basis for a full load is at or below 1.2.
