 English term or phrase: how can you then quantify The Green Grid and other industry groups are working on metrics that address the measurement of productive energy consumption, but issues remain. John Tuccillo, chairman of the board and president at The Green Grid, says, "Once that kilowatt gets to the rack, blade, processor or processor core, ***how can you then quantify how that unit of energy is being used for the intended purpose? ***That's the holy grail." quantify与how之间是不是漏了and？ 但又觉得quantify后面应该跟对象或宾语比较合理。 不明白***这部分的意思。

 Chinese translation:如何量化 Explanation: how that unit of energy is being used for the intended purpose 是指能量的有效利用状况（所消耗的能量中有多少用于目标用途），所以用 how。 整句话无非是说 如何量化能量的有效利用率，当然原文比较精确。 个人感觉，英文有时很精确，有时却不必死抠字眼，只要领会其核心意思即可。
