Eni Green Data Center, Pavia, Italy Energy company Eni claims this facility has the world’s best power usage effectiveness rating at 1.2. It achieves this in part by using ambient air to cool servers and by tightening use of non-computing energy as much as possible. For instance, the facility’s room lighting won’t work unless someone has keyed into the building, so lights can’t be left burning when no one is there. The company claims the complex creates 335,000 fewer pounds of CO2 emissions per year than it would if it were a conventionally designed data center.
