University of Toledo Data Center Saves $1,000 in Energy in 3 Weeks
The University of Toledo says its “Green Data Center,” featuring the ReliaFlex Advanced Power System has been operational for three weeks and has already saved $1,000 in energy.
Ohio-based GEM Energy designed, developed and commercialized the ReliaFlex system, using a $1 million loan from Ohio Third Frontier. The University of Toledo’s gas turbine-based power system uses the technologies and packaging techniques that GEM Energy designed and implemented for the power system at Syracuse University’s Green Data Center in conjunction with IBM in 2010.
The University’s modular ReliaFlex system includes:
- Four C65 Capstone Hybrid Uninterrupted Power System Micro Turbines
- A Thermax USA exhaust fired chilled water module with hot water output
- An external battery system for 10 minutes of electricity
