The Home Depot


The Home Depot is the second largest retailer in the United States with 2,266 stores. Online retail, Omni channel retail and data management are some of their largest initiatives, creating a need for more data and larger operating systems. Their goal is to increase the amount of systems and reduce the energy needed to run them.

As a Better Buildings Challenge Partner, The Home Depot has committed to reduce energy use in two of their data centers by 20% by 2024. They plan to meet their goal by measures including improved cooling strategies and improved layout of equipment in both data centers to reduce energy required to their cooling infrastructure.
