GE LEED Platinum Data Center Increases Server Density

GE’s Appliances & Lighting Division achieves LEED Platinum level at its new data center in Louisville, Ky.  The facility’s design, construction and operation are focused on reducing data center energy consumption and lowering the building’s environmental footprint.  …

  • In addition to installing innovative, high-efficiency cooling systems, GE is installing high-density servers to pack more computing power per square foot, reducing the size of the data center floor by half compared to the data center it replaces. This means that less energy is needed to cool the space.
  • GE is reducing water consumption inside the building by 42 percent compared to the industry baseline7 by installing ultra low-flow fixtures. Outside the building, GE is reducing water consumption by 100 percent.8
  • GE has offset 35 percent of the data center’s predicted annual energy consumption through the purchase of off-site renewable energy.
