PlanNet Consulting teamed with Mission Critical West to present “Designing a Green Data Center – from Conception to Delivery” at the Green Data Center Conference. The presentation begins with new energy-efficient data center planning including site selection requirements. Upgrading existing data centers to improve energy efficiency is also covered, including details of site assessments. Next, several design configurations including those for cooling, power containment and aisle containment are presented. Critical equipment features and vendor/technology comparisons are presented including cooling, back-up power, power distribution, structured cabling, life-safety and monitoring. Procurement methods are covered from design/bid/build to design/build, to equipment procurement through construction and commissioning. Lastly, key implementation steps are outlined including design review, construction oversight, commissioning, critical load cutover and transition to operations.
