Data Center Heat Recovery Helps Intel Create Green FacilityTo support Intel’s first planned certified green building, Intel IT has designed a system that saves energy by recovering data center heat and using it to heat the rest of the building.The system employs heat recovery (HR) chillers to capture heat produced by data center servers and other equipment. This heat warms the rest of the building in winter and provides year-round hot water for bathroom and kitchen use.Reusing data center heat eliminates the need to add boilers for heating the rest of the building. This energy-saving approach accumulates points towards environmental certification and is highly cost-effective. We project savings of approximately USD 235,000 annually due to reduced fuel consumption, resulting in an ROI of about 1.7 months.We expect that the system will go online in 2008. We have already successfully retrofitted a heat recovery system at an existing facility.BackgroundIn 2008, Intel is planning to open its first green-certified building: a new development center in Israel.The facility will have six floors above ground, with an additional five floors below ground. It will include a high-density, air-cooled data center occupying approximately 10,000 square feet, with total power consumption up to 3.7 megawatts (MW) when operating at full capacity.Energy-efficient design helps buildings accumulate points towards certification under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. We made energy efficiency, including heat reuse, a primary goal during the building’s design and engineering phases.Read the full Data Center Heat Recovery Helps Intel Create Green Facility Case Study.
