There are two use details for a Data Center use that may have a default value selected:
- Apply Data Center Energy Estimates - the default value is No. This is because users are encouraged to separately meter and track IT Energy in Portfolio Manager, which is the best practice and will result in the most accurate score.
- IT Energy Configuration - the default value depends on whether the user is applying energy estimates.
- If Apply Data Center Energy Estimates = No, the default value is: "Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) supports only IT Equipment (preferred)". This is the preferred location for metering IT Energy.
- If Apply Data Center Energy Estimates = Yes, the default value is: "No IT Energy Configuration Selected". In most cases, if a user is applying estimates, it is because they do not have access to IT Energy meter readings, so this selection is the most appropriate.
