Energy inefficiency in a conventional data center

Starting the savings downstream at a typical data center can achieve leverage of 10- or even 100-fold in saved fuel back at the power plant.

 

Energy efficiency in piping design

http://www.rmi.org/RFGraph-energy_efficiency_in_piping_design
There are simple but important opportunities to save energy through improved piping design. For instance, pipes are often laid out at right angles rather than in a geometry that minimizes friction and cost.

 

Integrative design case studies: pump systems

http://www.rmi.org/RFGraph-integrative_design_case_studies_pump_systems
Based on discussions with engineer Eng Lock Lee, a well–engineered redesign of many pumping systems will yield 80–90% savings. In these examples, many of these savings came from piping enhancements, the use of variable speed drives, digital sensors, the removal of oversized equipment, and high-efficiency equipment.
