This project was sponsored by the California Energy Commission's Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Industrial program with technical leadership by LBNL.

Duke 380V DC Data Center Demo SiteDuke Energy 380V DC Power Demo

Duke Energy and EPRI Sponsored DC Powered Data Center Demonstration using 380V DC Power.  Through this demonstration, it is expected that the Duke Energy data center should yield anywhere from 7 to 20 percent energy savings, depending on the vintage of the equipment compared.

Visa 380V DC Lab

Direct Power Technologies, Inc announced the successful commissioning of a "first-in-world" multi generation source ZBB EnerSystem™ that provides uninterrupted power to DC voltage lighting loads, rack power to servers and other miscellaneous loads at (VISA's flagship) data center.

380V DC White Papers

Working 380V DC Demo Site380V DC Architectures for the Modern Data Center

This paper presents an overview of the case for the application of 380V DC as a vehicle for optimization and simplification of the critical electrical system in the modern data center. Specifically, this paper presents currently available architectures consistent with ANSVBICSI 002-2011 and the EMerge Alliance/Data Telecom Center Standard Version 1.0. Additional EMerge Alliance white papers will explore the specific elements including economics, reliability, safety and efficiency.

P.U.E. of a 380V DC Data CenterP.U.E. of a 380V DC Data Center

As the demands on data centers increase, creating higher costs and power usage, the industry is looking for ways to increase efficiency and decrease operating costs. One potential area of increased efficiency lies in the power distribution configuration within the data center and its IT equipment.
