Citigroup Plans $232 Million LEED Data Center
Citigroup plans to build a $232 million LEED-certified data center in Frankfurt, Greener Computing reports. The data center, which the company said would cost no more to build than a traditional facility, will go online in March 2008. Citigroup estimates that the facility will save 11,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions and cut energy use at the site by 75 percent.
Citi recently announced that it would invest $50 billion over the next 10 years to address global climate change.
The new data center could save enough energy to power 3,000 family homes for a year, using 12 million fewer gallons of water.
