With the growing number of smart phones, IoT-enabled devices, daily transactions and hunger for more data is all set to increase the load on data centres which need to focus on increasing energy efficiency. There is a growing need to build and design Data Centre’s equipments in the most energy-efficient manner. The need for focus on bolstering an infrastructure for Data Centres where ‘energy efficiency is a core concern’ was highlighted at the ‘Indian Society of Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Engineers’ (ISHRAE) flagship event “Symposia 2018” themed ‘All about Data Centres – Convergence of All Stake-Holders’ in Mumbai last week.

Describing optimized energy usage in data centres as a major challenge for all companies as the data centres are running on redundant power and cooling systems that consume lot of energy,”  C Subramaniam Mani, National President, ISHRAE, said “Companies are seeking solutions in strategically managing energy and making data centres energy-efficient alongside reducing power costs.

“Symposia 2018 is one such program designed by ISHRAE Mumbai Chapter with emphasis on the prominent issue of energy consumption in data centres and focus on delivering solutions to strategically optimize air-conditioning and refrigerating facilities to reduce energy consumption,” he said.

“Symposia 2018 focuses on ways to reduce energy consumption and related costs. ISHRAE is an association of 12000 members of HVAC&R engineers across India with the presence in 41 cities. It also has 10,000 student members. The main goal of ISHRAE is disseminating the knowledge of HVAC & R through training and courses," said Sangita Jhangiani, President, ISHRAE Mumbai Chapter.

Murari Sinhal, Group Sr. Vice-President, Reliance Industries Ltd, said Data Centres are growing exponentially by 24% annually at Rs 7,000 crore in India and there is a need for all stakeholders  to focus on “Effective Power Utilization” (PUE), which plays an important role through related ‘Server Rate Designers’ and ‘Air-cooling System Designers.’ “Reliance has achieved 1.4 PUE and refrigeration engineers need to concentrate on this with Data Centre designers,” he said.

Mihir Sanghavi, President-elect Ishrae Mumbai Chapter said “Symposia is a National program for ISHRAE Mumbai Chapter with different niche themes every year. The event also showcased all the innovative technologies in HVAC&R industry which can be used to ensure the optimized energy usage in the data centre.”

"In addition to the technical program we conduct for members we also organize program for student members like ISTL. Another initiative we have started is organizing IJJ (ISHRAE Job Junction) where we invite industry leading companies and the students for interaction with each other so that students are able to get an insight into companies, which help them when they join the organization," said Shankar Sapaliga, President of ASHRAE Mumbai Chapter & Director of West - 1 of ISHRAE.
