In recent years, there has been a significant growth in number, size and power densities of data centers. A significant part of a data center power consumption is attributed to the cooling infrastructure, such as air handling units and chillers. Furthermore, non-renewable energy sources such as solar and wind are being explored for powering data centers. In this talk, I'll provide an overview of some of our research in data center energy management.
