There has been rapid growth of the Information Technology (IT) industry in India. Data Centers – key infrastructure component powering this sector, operate continuously (24×7) throughout the year, and are very energy intensive. These high-tech facilities generally consume many times the energy of a typical office building – as much as a hundred times more on a square-meter basis. These facilities are experiencing significant growth in India, making this sector one of the fastest growing energy-use sectors and impacting electrical supply and distribution.
