A Holistic Approach to Energy Management

Total Energy Management for Professional Data Centers

The TEMPRO project—”Total Energy Management for Professional Data Centers”—develops solutions to significantly reduce data center energy consumption. It focuses on a holistic approach to energy management.

Instead of just taking the energy required for current operations into consideration, as was usually the case in the past, the TEMPRO team looks at the entire life cycle of all devices and equipment at a data center—from the production of raw materials to manufacturing and transportation to recycling.

Borderstep will contribute to the TecPo “Technologies and Potential” sub-project by establishing a scientific basis of assessment for a holistic view of data center energy requirements. Further objectives of this project include identifying and evaluating efficiency technologies for data centers and determining their savings potentials.

TEMPRO is a collaborative network project initiated by Borderstep together with seven other project partners and three associated partners. The project is funded within the context of the 6th Federal Government Energy Research Program.
