What are data center sustainability consultants? Watch Dan Prows of Morrison Hershfield explain what a sustainability consultant is and the importance of including one in the design of a sustainable data center.
When a sustainability consultant is part of a design team early on, they’re able to help guide the team; help them make the decisions that are relative to sustainability. What type of materials should we be using? What type of equipment should we be using?
We will utilize an energy model to show what a typical data center would use under the similar conditions; use that as a baseline, and then show through this model that the design actually exceeds the performance standards set forth by a typical data center.
In these ways, we’re able to show and to validate to the certifying organization that, yes, in fact, the design meets the criteria of a sustainable project.
