  • But the challenge hasn’t stopped major technology companies investing in ways to improve data centre efficiency.
  • The system not only delivered 40% cuts to energy consumption, but also reduced Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) – the ratio of total building energy use to IT energy use – by as much as 15%.
  • Google’s data centres, although powered by renewables , still consume vast amounts of energy during cooling processes.
  • Tech giant Google has taken a “phenomenal step forward” in its efforts to drive energy efficiency, after developing artificial intelligence (AI) that has reduced energy consumption at its data centres by 40%.
  • A blog post by Google’s reads: “The implications are significant for Google’s data centres, given its potential to greatly improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions overall.
