made me smile | google cools with ice

google logo for the earth day 2007

google is known as a leading green information technology company. the name is confirmed by google’s decision of cooling the new data centers in taiwan with ice made overnight.

thanks to a thermal storage system, the system will run at night, making ice during off-peak hours and will pump cold water around the buildings during the day, when electricity demands are higher.

google expects the data centre to use 50 percent less energy than other data centres. a large financial and environmental saving. who will be the next one to adopt this system?
