Management overview in data centres

Project with e-shelter

e-shelter is Europe's largest operator of data centres. Since 2015, the company is using the deZem system for the energy management of its 300 MW colocation-capacity at 20 sites.

Project goals

  • Monitoring, measurement and analysis of consumption data and data from electrical control technology
  • Evaluation of data to analyse the energetic optimisation of all relevant plants and systems (determining and developing PUE)
  • Tailored reporting for management, technicians and customers
  • Benchmarking for systems and sites
  • Verifying manufacturer information on equipment efficiency
  • Basis for ISO 50001 audit

„deZem provides us with innovative, technically solid solutions, precisely matching our requirements on reporting in modern data centres.‟

 T. Krause, energy manager 

Technical implementation

  • Integration of already existing measurements from electrical control technology and calibrated measurements (consumption data)
  • Linking of diverse measurements from the central BMS
  • Real-time evaluation of PUEs, benchmarking of data centres
  • Dashboards (deZemBoard) and reports (deZemReport) specific for indivudual target-groups 
  • Customized implementation of special reports, conformant with CI

Benefits and Achievements

  • Company-wide transparency on energy efficency at all sites - for individual facilities, systems and PUEs

  • Individual reporting of SLAs per suite comprehensive and cost-efficient

  • Effective supervision of manufacturer information under actual conditions involving the procurement department

  • Findings are immediately used in the development of new data centres
