Fact Sheet: Computer Rooms & Data Centers

“The 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards apply to all space conditioning systems serving computer rooms. The Energy Standards define a computer room as:

“A room within a building whose primary function is to house electronic equipment and that has a design equipment power density exceeding 20 watts/ft2 (215 watts/m²) of conditioned floor area.”

When the Standards apply, the energy requirements specific to computer rooms can be found in §140.9(a) of Title 24, Part 6. The requirements for computer rooms are prescriptive and may be traded off if the performance method of compliance is used.  ”
