Uniflair LE recieves DOE energy certification
Schneider Electric’s division picked up the certification for energy efficiency for its work within the data centre environment
Uniflair LE Room Cooling, a series under the energy management and automation technology giant Schneider Electric, has recently received the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) certification for energy efficiency.
Designed for the data centre environment, Uniflair LE received DOE certification under updated standards that support the implementation of green technologies.
Offering a variety of cooling technologies, Schneider Electric’s range features highly efficient electronically commutated (EC) fans, intelligent controls, and optimization during part-load operation.
John Niemann, director of cooling product management, Schneider Electric, shared: “The DOE energy efficiency certification is critical to demonstrate our commitment to providing customers with green solutions.”
He added: “Helping our customers reduce energy waste is at the forefront of what we do, so we’re especially pleased to be working with both the DOE and the California Energy Commission (CEC) to do our part and ensure that the industry is moving toward a more sustainable future.”
Since 2012, the DOE has regulated the energy efficiency levels of computer room air conditioners. The decision was undertaken to encourage the development and utilisation of green technologies, as well as the creation of uniform test methods for measuring energy efficiency.
The establishment of the energy efficiency certification introduces a balanced standard to the market, driving trends towards curbing energy consumption and reducing operating costs for end-users.
“As a company founded on the principle that everyone should have access to safe, reliable, and efficient energy, we continue to provide the most environmentally-conscious and cost-effective solutions to our customers in all facets of our evolving business,” added Niemann.
