2011 EMEA Tech Forum – Data Center Life Cycle Analysis

13 October, 2011 | Presentation

Christophe Garnier, Schneider Electric

Environmental impacts of products have become a major issue in the world today. This is also true for data centres. Studies from The Green Grid and other organizations only partially cover parts of a complete life cycle analysis. The objective of the data center life cycle analysis study is not to provide numbers, but to present a formal framework based on international standards to conduct data centre life cycle analysis. It will then identify existing studies dealing with environmental aspects of data centres or components of data centres and finally make a proposal for future studies to get as close as possible to a complete data centre life cycle analysis.
