Google is always known well for using green technology in its operation and again going in the same run; the search giant is planning to use thermal storage system in its new Taiwan data center. This facility will take advantage of a thermal energy storage system to reduce air conditioning costs in which the facility’s air conditioning will run through the night, but will use chilled liquid or ice circulated around the facility during the day. According to Google’s spokesperson, “this will be one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly data centers in Asia.” The construction on the new data center just started yesterday, and a Google Taiwan representative said the facility should be online by the second half of 2013.
