DATA CENTER INFRASTRUCTURE EFFICIENCY DEFINITION (continued): …  at or near the facility utility's meter. If the data center is in a mixed-use facility or office building, take a measurement only at the meter that is powering the data center. If the data center is not on a separate utility meter, estimate the amount of power being consumed by the non-data center portion of the building and remove it from the equation. 2. Measure the IT equipment load, which should be measured after power conversion, switching, and conditioning is completed. According to The Green Grid, the most likely measurement point would be at the output of the computer room power distribution …
