Green Data Center, Syracuse University, New York Built in cooperation with IBM and New York State, the Green Data Center at Syracuse University is completely off the grid, generating all the electricity it needs using a series of 12 natural gas-powered turbines. Hot exhaust from the turbines is used to heat water for an adjacent office building and also is used in absorption chillers in which heat drives a refrigeration system. That system cools water that is used to carry heat away from the data center’s server area. Battery backup can keep the center running at full power for 17 minutes, long enough for an orderly shutdown of servers, if that is necessary.
