when Germans do something, they do it right the first time... :)
 

...and the first data centre in the world to achieve a platinum rating 

Citi's new Data Centre in Frankfurt has been awarded LEED Platinum, it's the first data centre in the world to achieve a platinum rating and the first building in Germany to achieve LEED accreditation.

The new building sets new standards in sustainable design, set to bring about dramatic changes in the way that energy-hungry data centres are designed and built in the future. Incorporating a raft of environmental measures that achieve maximum sustainability with no compromise to operation or reliability, the building proves that this energy hungry building sector can be built to perform at optimum levels of energy efficiency and environmental consciousness.

From an aesthetic perspective, the design of the complex is a combination of intelligently designed inhabited spaces and extensive green planes. However, the most radical green innovations are mostly hidden. The Frankfurt Centre will use only 30% of the power required for services that a conventional data centre would utilize, only 40% of the heating energy; and through the use of innovative reverse osmosis treatment saves 35,950,000 litres of water per annum.
