Citi Cuts Energy Use 10% at London Data Center
The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) is providing half the funding of an $8.2 million project to deliver efficient electricity and cooling for a Citi data center in London. Private co-investors are providing matched funding for the project.
The data center will be outfitted with a 2.8 MW combined cooling and power (CCP) system via two 1.4 MW GE Jenbacher 1 systems. The project also includes energy efficient cooling units and efficiency improvements to the building’s air conditioning system.
The CCP system will generate 71 percent of the electricity needed to power the data center. It will also provide cooling for the servers housed in the data center. Citi currently uses electricity from the national grid and relies on back-up diesel generators.
The project will involve no upfront capital expenditure for Citi as the cost will be paid out of the energy savings achieved.
