China Embraces Commitment to Reduce Emissions
March 10, 2016
China has taken major steps to reduce carbon emissions, and the country took a significant step in December 2015, when it signed the Paris Climate Agreement to:
- Lower carbon dioxide intensity by 60 to 65 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
- Increase the share of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption to about 20 percent
- Increase forest stock volume by about 4.5 billion cubic meters from 2005 levels
This was the first official commitment by the country to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and pollution. Also last year, energy consumption was reduced by 5.6 percent in relation to the previous year, the biggest drop in a decade, according to the National Bureau of Statistics in China (NSB).
Additionally, according to Data Center Knowledge, the technology market in Asia is growing faster than anywhere else with most of the growth occurring in China. It will be a challenge to sustain growth while reducing power consumption and carbon emissions.
As equipment densities continue to increase, critical attention to airflow management has become a vital practice for optimizing energy efficiency and maintaining enterprise uptime. In response to this, Chatsworth Products (CPI) has developed its Passive Cooling® Solutions - the most cost- and cooling-effective thermal management breakthrough on the market today.
By offering innovative airflow management techniques, CPI Passive Cooling Solutions allow you to maximize your cooling efficiencies without the need for additional CRAC units, in-row air conditioners or liquid cooling solutions.
From small applications with heat loads of 2 kW per cabinet to large data center applications with heat densities beyond 30 kW, CPI Passive Cooling Solutions provide advanced thermal management with zero points of failure, thus providing no impediments to Tier IV availability.
CPI Passive Cooling Benefits:
- Lowers construction costs relative to active cooling solutions
- Reduces data center cooling costs up to 90%
- Saves up to 40% on total data center energy costs
- Allows for higher Delta T's between the data center cooling air and exhaust air
- Allows for Tier IV operation because there are no potential points of failure requiring redundant systems
- Permits chilled water temperatures to be increased, providing access to more hours of economization and greater chiller efficiency
