Cooling Systems Optimization

Deschutes Brewery and Holladay Park Plaza Save with the Energy Trust of Oregon

By Rod Smith, Chiller & Cooling Best Practices Magazine

Since 2002, Energy Trust of Oregon have saved and generated 728 average megawatts of electricity and 52 million annual therms of natural gas. This is enough energy to power Multnomah and Washington counties while heating Deschutes County homes. ETO has saved enough energy equal to the output of a power plant and reduced reliance on fossil fuels. In total, they have invested $1.5 billion to save customers more than $6.9 billion on their energy bills over time.

Modular Cooling Blocks Revolutionize Data Center Energy Usage

By Lisa Tryson, Director of Corporate Communications, Danfoss

Data center power consumption is on the rise, increasing 56 percent worldwide and 36 percent in the U.S. from 2005-2010. These substantial energy demands come at a price, and controlling operational costs in data centers has been a persistent challenge. IT systems are designed to ramp up and down based on a businesses’ use, yet cooling systems in data centers were not previously designed to do that.
