On October 13, Tao Yuren, an engineer of the Shanghai Energy Conservation Center, said in a speech at the 16th China IDC Industry Annual Ceremony held in Shanghai that the average CPUE of the Shanghai data center is about 1.5, which meets the standard requirement of no more than 1.7. For a very small number of data centers that exceed the standard and fail to pass the rectification, differential electricity prices will be implemented.
The 16th China IDC Industry Annual Ceremony Shanghai Station (IDCC2021 Shanghai Station) is hosted by the Data Center Committee of China Communications Industry Association and China IDC Industry Annual Ceremony Organizing Committee, and is hosted by China IDC Quan. The conference invited leaders of relevant government departments, industry experts, industry elites and other heavyweight guests to attend the conference to interpret policies and analyze industry development. In the speech on "Data Center Energy Conservation Policy and Supervision under the "Dual Carbon" Strategy", Tao Yuren explained the development status of Shanghai Energy Conservation Center under the background of carbon peak, carbon neutral and dual carbon, as well as data center management and data Center for the implementation of quotas, and put forward recommendations on the management of information infrastructure.
He said that the Energy Conservation Center inspected 67 data centers in August and September this year. The work was carried out in two phases. The first phase was the enterprise self-inspection along with the corresponding self-inspection report. The second phase is to carry out on-site inspection based on the written inspection report. At present, all inspections have been completed, and the collected data will be consolidated and reported to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. According to the current inspection results, most of the data centers in Shanghai do very well in terms of energy efficiency. The average CPUE is about 1.5, which meets the standard requirement of less equal than 1.7.
For a very small number of data centers that exceed the standard, Shanghai has also introduced relevant follow-up measures. For data centers that do not meet the standard, a half-year rectification period will be given. If the rectification has not been completed within two years of the issuance of this notice, the companies will not be supported to apply for a new data center project. At the same time, the companies are required to charge the differential power prices in accordance with the "Administrative Measures for the Implementation of Differential Power Prices in Promoting the Adjustment of Industrial Structure in Shanghai".
