Pablo Medina evaluated energy consumption at four of Intuit's data centers.
Pablo Medina spent his summer as a Climate Corps fellow at Intuit, a leading provider of business and financial management solutions. Medina, a MBA/MS student at the University of Michgian's Erb Institute, evaluated energy consumption at four of Intuit's data centers which use a significant amount of air conditioning energy to cool computer equipment.
Medina identified eight efficiency opportunities ranging from simple actions like bundling cables which improves airflow to creating hot air containment aisles which lead to increased cooling efficiency.
Combined, the opportunities could potentially save Intuit close to $358,000 and 2,600,000 kWh annually.
