DALLAS — April 27, 2016 — With energy one of the major operating expenses (OpEX) for data center operations, balancing short-term energy efficiency with the long-term benefits of sustainability doesn’t have to be an either-or-choice according to short video released today by GE’s Critical Power business (NYSE: GE).

“Efficiency versus sustainability isn’t an ‘either-or’ proposition,” says Jeff Schnitzer, general manager of GE’s Critical Power business in this video. “Our customers see power protection and conversion efficiency as a key OpEx saving. Yet they also look at energy sustainability for its long term OpEx impact as a business and competitive imperative.”

The series is available for viewing at “Power Thoughts” in the “Topics” section on the company’s information and resource page.
