In this talk we present the holistic approach to data center energy efficiency in practice at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). NREL completed construction of its warm-water, liquid cooled data center in late 2012. This data center is demonstrating an annualized average PUE of 1.06. It uses evaporative cooling rather than mechanical chillers and the waste heat generated by the HPC system is captured and used as the primary heat source for the building office space and laboratories. The new data center cost less to build than comparable data centers and will cost less to operate. We will share our experiences to date with liquid cooling, lessons learned along the way, and some thoughts about the future.
