PORTFOLIO ENERGY PERFORMANCE
Better Buildings Challenge partners sharing data centers strive to decrease portfolio-wide power usage effectiveness (PUE) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Iron Mountain's portfolio consists of 3 data centers. Iron Mountain achieved its first goal in 2019, improving energy performance by 40% from a 2016 baseline and meeting their goal of 20% six years early. Iron Mountain has repledged to improve their energy performance another 30% by 2024 from a new 2019 baseline. Energy efficiency improvements have been achieved by refining air management practices, as well as utilizing AI and ML software (at VA-1) for building management system automation, and data center infrastructure tuning.
