Johnson Controls Announces New Sustainable Solutions for Data Centers

With two decades of experience in the construction industry, Matthew Musheno serves as a senior account executive at Johnson Controls, Inc., located in Atlanta, Georgia. Among his responsibilities, Matthew Musheno develops large projects that incorporate green building solutions, including utilizing sustainable energy sources.

Committed to helping its clients achieve their sustainability and efficiency goals, Johnson Controls recently announced a new line of industry-focused products for data centers. Designed to meet the needs of data centers operating in areas where natural resources are scarce, the new products reduce total cost of ownership as well as increase water and power usage efficiency (WUE and PUE). 

The product line offers fire suppression, cooling, water flow, energy optimization, and other efficiency solutions. One of the most powerful product series includes the YORK Mission Critical Direct Evaporative Cooling (DEC) Air Handling Units (AHUs), which reduce water usage through high media efficiency and are specifically designed to accommodate phased data center expansion methodologies. Due to its innovative technology, the YORK Mission Critical Direct Evaporative Cooling Air Handling Unit provides a partial-power usage effectiveness (pPUE) that is less than 1.1. Johnson Controls' new offerings for data centers all come with data-enabled analytics as well as ongoing repair, maintenance, and operations services.
