Honorable Mentions: Syracuse University Green Data Center, Syracuse, NY

Syracuse University Green Data Center, Syracuse, NY

Syracuse University’s Green Data Center is one of the world’s most energy efficient data centers. The 12,000 square-foot facility uses 50 percent less energy and produces fewer greenhouse gases than traditional data centers. It was built in six months and uses hybrid UPS Capstone 65 kW microturbines, absorption chillers, IBM-developed cooling doors on each server rack that uses chilled water to maintain constant server temperatures, a rooftop cooling tower and on-site conversion of utility AC power to DC power. Between five and 10 of the center’s 12 microturbines are used at any given time to power servers and equipment.
