Hewlett-Packard and Intel will build a new data center for the Energy Department‘s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, with a goal of building the world’s most energy efficient data center.

Environmental Leader reports the $10 million data center, to be located at the lab’s Golden, Colo. campus, could have an annual average power usage effectiveness rating of 1.06 or better.

On average, data centers typically have a 1.91 rating, according to the report.

Citing an NREL statement, the website reports the center will have the world’s largest computing center focusing solely on renewable energy and energy efficiency research.

When complete, the new center will have technology that uses warm water in the computing rack to cool the servers.

HP is designing a new data center it believes could reduce power usage by 30 percent and not use the traditional energy grid.
