A significant component of the energy needs in any data center comes from its cooling footprint. The MGHPCC has been designed to minimize its cooling needs by using outside air to remove heat whenever possible, reducing the need for energy-intensive chiller operation. To further reduce energy consumption, the mechanical and electrical equipment has been designed to operate reliably at relatively high temperatures, further reducing cooling needs.
