Seeing the lack of a formal methodology for measuring data center energy efficiency, The Green Grid (a non-profit, open industry consortium of end-users, policy makers, technology providers, facility architects, and utility companies) introduced the calculation of a new energy efficiency metric called power usage effectiveness (PUE) that went on to become the widely accepted industry de facto standard.
Then there is a discussion of the impact of implementing the new ASHRAE (2008b) Environmental Guidelines for Datacom Equipment on the data center energy efficiency.
lt;p>Seventy-two percent of those surveyed said the size of the investment was the primary barrier to improving their data center energy efficiency, followed by lack of specific information on the return of the investment for making changes (38%), server down time required to implement changes (38%), and concerns about running legacy software on new systems (34%).
The survey also showed that data center energy efficiency is fast becoming a priority in the industry, with 42% of survey respondents saying they have either analyzed efficiency or are currently analyzing it.

However, optimizing data center energy efficiency requires moving from traditional data center densities (2 kW to 3 kW per rack) to an environment that can support much higher densities (in excess of 30 kW).
