Free tools estimate data center carbon footprint

White paper from APC by Schneider Electric.

A white paper from APC by Schneider Electric introduces "a simple approach, supported by free Web-based tools, for estimating the carbon footprint of a data center anywhere in the world." Automated tools described by the paper include the Schneider Electric Data Center Carbon Calculator, Data Center Efficiency Calculator, IT Carbon & Energy Allocation Calculator, and Data Center Power Sizing Calculator TradeOff Tool.

The company says the applications are designed to help data center professionals understand how they use electricity, and to recognize how changes in a facility's energy efficiency can impact its carbon footprint.
