EDF Consolidates 3 Data Centers into a Single Energy Efficient Model


EDF, an energy company in the UK, recently decided to consolidate several older data centers into one energy efficient model.

EDF worked with IBM to install the data center, from design to construction.

EDF said it gleaned some “best practices” from IBM.

The data center has increased airflow to improve energy efficiency. The chiller uses ambient air to help reduce energy use.

Racking systems also were maximized for chilling effect.

EDF said it expects to realize about $60 million in benefits, from reduced energy to increased business capacity.

EDF said it plans to reduce workplace energy use 30 percent by 2012.

  1. Whoever wrote this article needs a little help. EDF is owned by the French government. It operates most of the power generation in France and a significant part of the generation in the UK as well as several UK DNOs. It is not and never has been a “Uk company”. It is for all intents and purposes an arm of the French state.
