In a recently released review report, the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP confirmed the significant savings in energy, resources, and cost of the NDC Data Centers technologies.
The review evaluated an external assessment of two critical features required for data centers, namely the Life Cycle Assessment of the Environmental Impact (LCA) and the Life Cycle Costs (LCC). In both criteria, the NDC Data Centers’ innovative and proprietary approach was more than 2x better compared with the current industry-standard. This scenario does not consider the energy consumption of the IT Hardware.
The research results yielded a 50 percent lower environmental impact (greenhouse potential) over the entire life cycle (20 years), a 73 percent lower environmental impact (greenhouse potential) of building execution (harvesting of resources, transportation, construction), and 50 percent lower life cycle costs.
