According to the Department of Energy, data centers are one of the most energy-intensive building types, consuming 10 to 50 times the energy per floor space of a typical commercial office building. Collectively, these spaces account for approximately 2% of the total U.S. electricity use and will continue to grow as our country's use of information technology grows. It has been estimated that roughly 40% of data center energy use can be attributed to HVAC operations in server room facilities.
