As a diligent data center operator, you’ve optimized many parts of your facility but what happens when you have worthwhile energy-efficiency projects that do not meet the financial criteria of your CFO? Many data centers have picked their low-hanging fruit and the remaining projects are still worthwhile, but their paybacks do not meet the threshold for consideration in the budgeting process. In this session, we’ll explore the various financial tools available to data center operators in both private industry and the public sector which can help businesses, agencies and institutions accomplish a greater number of projects that do not meet budgeting thresholds typical of the data center & IT industries. Some of the benefits of these approaches include off balance sheet/off credit transactions, embedded Operations and Maintenance support of new equipment and the ability to fund the project from energy savings.
