Barclays to install energy efficient cooling system

Barclays to install energy efficient cooling system
Barclays is set to use Dynamic Smart Cooling technology to make its new data centre facility more energy efficient, it has emerged.

The high street bank is planning the new facility as part of its five-year programme to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 20 per cent per employee, Computer Weekly reported.

The Smart Cooling technology, which will manage the building's air conditioning, has the ability to deliver the appropriate amount of cooling only where needed, rather than cooling the entire data centre simultaneously.

According to Elaine Heyworth, head of environmental management for the global, retail and commercial banking division at the bank, the system will allow Barclays to reduce the amount of power used to cool its data centre equipment.

Barclays anticipates that it will save up to 7,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by using its air conditioning systems more effectively.

This week, chancellor Alistair Darling announced in his budget speech that the government has set a new goal of making business premises in the UK carbon neutral by 2019.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18510624-ADNFCR
