HP has announced it was selected as a winner of a prestigious 2010 Green Enterprise IT Award, presented by the Uptime Institute. Green Enterprise IT Awards showcase organizations pioneering energy-efficiency improvements in their IT and data centre operations or providing technology that can significantly reduce energy consumption.
HP was recognized as the winner in the Data Center Design category for its Wynyard facility in the United Kingdom. Commissioned in September 2009, the data centre uses a large quantity of fresh air supplied by fans through high-efficiency filters to reduce the energy required for cooling. The building features an energy-efficient and sustainable design that incorporates recycled materials as well as harvested rainwater.
