Green IT Sub-Committee Agenda 1) Re-cap: Jan-2012 Recommendations to CIO Council 2) Green IT Metrics (from Submitted Energy Conservation Measures in 2013 GHG Reduction Plans) 3) Identified Drivers of Growth and Change in IT Greenhouse Gases 4) Discussion 19 Harvard IT Energy Consumption The Scale of the Opportunity (Back of the Napkin Estimate in CY2011) IT = 13-25% of Total Energy Usage* Total Harvard Electricity Demand = ~40-60 MW Peak Total IT Consumption = ~8-10 MW ($9-11M/year) or 13-25% Data Centers = ~6 MW ($6.7M/year) 3 MW computing + 3 MW cooling (inc. LMA and 1 Summer St)
Network Equipment = ~0.5-1 MW ($0.6M-1.1M/year) ~100K ports @ 5-10 W End Points = ~1.5-3 MW ($1.7M-3.4M/year) 30-60K endpoints @ 50 W Note: These numbers are order of magnitude estimates Power to Energy Cost per year calculation : Power (kW or MW) x 365.25 days x 24 hours x 80% load factor x $0.16 per kWH * Stanford and several Australian Universities that base-lined electrical consumption affirm that IT equipment is responsible for 25-30% of the overall electrical energy consumption on campus. 20 Expanded Green IT Guidelines Recommendations and Discussion Points (Endorsed by CIO Council in Jan-2012) Target ~$2M of $12M Harvard Green Loan Fund for Green IT projects. Loans will be interest free. Schools/depts. apply for Harvard Green Loan Funds for Green IT projects, where the funding source will help the project to be initiated. Green Loan Funds will fund up to 50% of the selected, qualifying project s cost. Green Loan Funds should not be used to fund on-going operations e.g. smart power-strips. Proposals must meet a 10 year simple payback criteria, and will go through a review process.
Recommended qualifying projects: Datacenter energy audits and energy efficiency, virtualization and consolidation projects. Consolidate to fewer, more cost and energy efficient data-centers. Rationalize location of compute (e.g. admin. compute at 60 Oxford Street, and 1 Summer Street; research/High Performance Compute at MGHPCC, Holyoke, MA). Incentivize initiatives to consolidate/move IT equipment into cost and energy efficient data-centers. Collectively work with NStar and National Grid to fund computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis and audits of data-centers, and resulting energy efficiency projects. School IT and Facilities collaboratively develop a local annual plan reflecting data-center energy audits and associated energy efficiency, virtualization, and data-center migration/consolidation projects. Case Studies: 60 Oxford Street Datacenter: Variable Speed Drive Implementation HUIT Unified Computing System Implementation Decommissioning the Harvard Divinity School Datacenter The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center Harvard Business School Shad Hall Datacenter Audit End-point power management : implementation of BigFix or Verdiem. Evaluate and deploy power management software like BigFix or Verdiem as Stanford has done. Start with low risk areas classrooms / labs. Stanford has ~35,000 devices under BigFix. Case Study: Pilot Verdiem project at HBS. School IT and Facilities collaboratively plan and implement a pilot end-point power management solution. If collective agreement BigFix and/or Verdiem as preferred solutions - negotiate volume licensing.
21 Expanded Green IT Guidelines Recommendations and Discussion Points (Endorsed by CIO Council in Jan-2012) Telework: Feasibility of pilot program Establish a cross-functional team (Finance, Facilities, HR and IT) at school level to explore and then pilot tele-work strategies, building off the policy development work that HHR is currently doing. Define categories of workers like Cisco does: e.g. campus based, mobile and remote. The major source of cost savings and sustainability gains is the avoidance of physical campus expansion. Explore feasibility of pilot tele-working initiative. Case Study : Harvard Divinity School 4-day Compressed Work week over the Summer. Intelligent Building Systems: Planning, implementation, support and impacts The classes of intelligent (digital) building systems are growing : Physical Access Control, Surveillance Video, Building Management (BMS/DDC), Lighting and faade control, Fire Alarm control, Green screen and digital signage, Elevator controls, Life/Safety monitoring, Utilities management, Traffic and Parking management, Point of Sale, Space management, and Vending form a partial list. On-going, structured dialog for planning, implementation, and support needed between Schools IT and Facilities, Campus Services and HUIT.
Case Studies Integration : Event Management System (EMS) and Building Management System (Siemens) at HLS Experiences with Digital Lighting Systems (DALI, Lutron) IT and Facilities collaborate to include IT plan within schools annual Greenhouse Gas Reduction plan (Mar-2013). CIO Council input and discussion: Other priorities / significant projects ? Green IT projects to be tackled collectively universitywide vs on a school by school basis? 22 Green IT Metrics Self-reported by schools for datacenters & endpoint devices (May 2013) as part of submitted tub GHG reduction plans Key Data Points and Themes (from work in process data - being validated and some gaps) Data-centers ~2MW IT load ~23M kWh/year total energy consumption ~$3.2M energy spend/year Data-center consolidation initiatives Data-center facilities efficiency projects
Virtualization projects Endpoint Devices ~ 20,000 managed endpoint devices (excludes students devices) ~3M kWH/year energy consumption ~$415K energy spend/year Smart-power-strips and power management initiatives Shared services initiatives Add Network component for energy consumption to self-reporting in CY2014 23 Identified Drivers of Growth and Change in IT related GHG Increase in # of devices that faculty, staff, students and other members of the Harvard community bring to campus and use. Growth in demand for research and high performance computing. Growth in eLearning. Growth in data volumes Increase in demand for wireless and wired networking Cloud based IT services Increase in amount of IT/AV/multi-media equipment in physical spaces
Physical growth Allston, House Renewal, other 24 Discussion Need CIO Council to encourage more communication and collaboration within IT teams, and with Facilities colleagues on energy conservation measures and GHG reduction. GSE, HMS and HUIT have extensive IT related energy conservation measures in CY2013+ plans. Historically, (not reflected in current year plan) schools and departments have implemented many IT related energy conservation measures. Comments, feedback and suggestions welcomed. Thank you. 25
