How location affects data center cooling

Data center energy efficiency is a huge concern. The Natural Resources Defense Council projected that by 2020, U.S. data centers alone will use 140 billion kilowatt-hours of energy on a yearly basis and a good portion of this electricity consumption will go toward data center cooling. What can administrators due to ensure efficiency? Pick a good location with a predictable climate, clean reusable air, and reliable equipment.
