Recently The Green Grid announced the creation of two new metrics designed to help improve the sustainability of data center facilities by measuring the effectiveness of carbon and water use tied specifically to the IT energy infrastructure they contain. The new metrics, Carbon Usage Effectiveness (CUE™) and the Water Usage Effectiveness (WUE™), are joining The Green Grid’s widely-used Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) metric. All are designed to help IT, facilities, and sustainability organizations across the globe optimize their data centers. This will be a facilitated discussion among a panel of contributors who co-authored CUE and WUE and the audience. The panel and audience will have an interactive session where we explore the benefits and challenges of the new metrics.
