What the big dogs know about eco-efficiency

What the big dogs know about eco-efficiency

What do three technology giants have in common?

This search engine, this social network and this innovative company are on a quest to prove their energy efficiency. Why?

It shows their customers they care about reducing their carbon footprint. And, it proves something even bigger to their investors—how energy efficiency affects their bottom line.

Case in point is the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) in Boulder, Colorado. On November 8th, NSIDC’s IT manager, Dave Gallaher, spoke about the center’s journey to energy efficiency at the Western Cooling Efficiency Center Facilities Manager’s Conference. Dave outlined how 8 Coolerado M50s helped the center reduce its energy use by as much as 97%—with a three-year payback on investment. See the results for yourself.

The math is simple. Data centers require cooling 24/7/365, which equates to a tremendous amount of energy use and, therefore, cost. A reduction in cost helps the company thrive. A reduction in energy helps the world thrive. It’s a win-win.
