Microsoft has opened new data centers that consume 50 percent less energy than those built three years ago, according to the company’s 2010 Citizenship Report. In FY2011, the software giant is working to reduce the power use effectiveness (PUE) of its new data center designs. The company’s goal is to construct data centers with an average 1.125 PUE rating (the industry average is currently 2; optimal energy use is 1) by 2012.
