Efficiency in today's world has become paramount in the quest to reduce our environmental impact on our planet. The focus on energy efficiency though can draw the attention away from other factors such as facility reliability. Efficiency improvements have been seen to affect reliability positively and negatively. The following paper will bring to light some of the designs concerns that must be accounted for while improving energy efficiency. It will continue to examine the effects that efficiency and reliability have on each other and ways to improve upon both. The primarily focus will be on the building industry and specifically data centers as a building sector that that has required increasing quantities power and a building type that requires a high level reliability.
