Monitoring and reporting tips
Obtaining an accredited NABERS rating is just the start of your path to a more sustainable data centre. Once you know how efficient your centre is in comparison with your peers, you can start to create strategies for reducing your energy use. For example, you could consider:
1. Establishing an energy management strategy for your company, identifying where energy efficiencies could be implemented to reduce costs as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
2. Monitoring and reporting on your energy use. It's important to continually monitor and report energy usage so that areas of concern can be identified and problems can be fixed. If you do not currently have adequate metering, you could install sub-meters. Good metering is critical to ensure reliable monitoring and reporting.
