Green High Performance Computing Center, Holyoke, Mass. Powered by electricity that is generated 70% from hydro-electric power, this facility was built with energy savings in mind by five Massachusetts universities – Harvard, MIT, Boston University, University of Massachusetts and Northeastern University. The design includes air cooling the water used to pull heat from the hot aisles within the data center, and low fan pressure in its ventilation system to reduce the power the fans use. Electricity is supplied by Holyoke Gas and Electric, which gets more than 70% of its energy from hydroelectric generators.
