Data-Centers-NC-v4 EAp2: Minimum energy performance
Project location: France
July 19, 2019
Dear LEED user,
Someone could tell me, the value that i have to compare to the PUE of my project?
Do I have to calculate a PUE max? In this case, how can I calculate or find the PUE max?
Thank you in advance for your answers.

The PUE is calculated for both the startup IT load and full load IT load energy models. The PUE values will be calculated automatically in the Performance Outputs tab of the v4 Minimum Energy Performance Calculator when the results are entered. Make sure you select LEED v4 BD+C: Data Centers as the rating system in the General Information tab. This is the only way the data center related calculations will show up in the Performance Outputs tab.
The Data Centers Reference Guide includes the details for completing the startup IT load and full load IT load energy models.

Do the required savings for this prerequisite (and credit) need to come only from building energy, or also process loads?
Our project doesn't have enough energy savings to earn the prerequisite. Can we get there by incorporating onsite renewables?
Our proposed design has insulation R-values that are below those prescribed by ASHRAE 90.1-2010. Can we still meet the prerequisite?
