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.

    The Germans have really taken off when it comes to renewable fuel sources, and have become one of the major players in the alternative energy game. Under the aegis of the nation’s electricity feed laws, the German people set a world record in 2006 by investing over $10 billion (US) in research, development, and implementation of wind turbines, biogas power plants, and solar collection cells. Germany’s “feed laws” permit the German homeowners to connect to an electrical grid through some source of renewable energy and then sell back to the power company any excess energy produced at retail prices.;
