While the Momentum Savings team has produced market intelligence and measured momentum savings in the HVAC and lighting markets, we are excited to be working on our first-ever data center project in late 2017 and early 2018. While the ultimate goal of our data centers research is to quantify momentum savings, the first project is laying the groundwork for future work by providing the research team a better understanding of data centers and all their niches and nuances.
Our current work in winter 2017-2018 on two components, scoping out a modeling approach, and qualitative interviews with various data center market actors. Twenty interviews conducted with data centers owners, IT specialists and equipment manufacturers, and more, will give us a contextual framework with which to begin. Not only will the findings of these interviews inform our work, but we believe they will also be a valuable resource to others in our industry who want to better understand data centers.
