DCD has opened the Energy Efficiency Improvers category of its annual data center awards, which recognizes those that have vastly improved the efficiency of existing facilities.

Some have managed to take data centers designed before the current drive towards greater energy efficiency and retrofit them to vastly improve the energy efficiency of a single or group of facilities. It is those we wish to celebrate with this award. 

The DCD Awards Energy Efficiency Improvers category will be judged by a panel of experts, and has been sponsored by Universal Electric Corporation, manufacturer of the STARLINE Track Busway.
