Industry group The Green Grid, which is promoting energy efficiency in data centers, is considering using this as an index of power use efficiency to measure improvements made through use of containers and other devices. PUE (power usage effectiveness), one of the indices used to indicate energy efficiency at conventional data centers, represents the quotient of the total electric power consumption of the data center divided by the electric power consumption of all servers and other IT equipment. Currently, the typical data center is said to have an average PUE of about 2.
