This online tool has been developed to help data center and facilities managers easily determine how much free air cooling and free evaporative cooling is available for individual data centers. Using country and city name, the tool allows users in Europe to input their specific variables - such as local energy costs, IT load, and facility load - to determine the energy savings for individual facilities.

Not working

The tool doesn't seem to do anything. Is there a fault?

Error or mistake?

why when I change the "DATA CENTER IT POWER" the rest of power feeld doesn't change? For example, if I put 100KW in "DATA CENTER IT POWER" field the "TOTAL FACILITY POWER " is not 160KW but 1600Kw.

Re: Latin America

Thanks for the comments. There are not currently enough member companies in The Green Grid to justify a Latin America map, but we will certainly keep it in mind for future projects.
