Data center energy cost calculator

This calculator can be used to estimate the costs of data center energy over time. Assumed lifetime is equal to 10 years - so total cost can be calculated with this assumption. To use this calculator, please provide your own values in the fields with yellow background (these are the active/editable fields):

  • IT Load - provide IT load only, please refer to the following article if this is not clear
  • Estimated PUE for data center facility - you can read about PUE here
  • Cost per kWh - use your own currency

All fields with green background are read-only. These are calculated fields.
