      The end of Australia's carbon tax

      Australia’s government has said it now wants to abolish its Carbon Tax – legislation that would have made its largest emitters pay for carbon emissions. The move could stop such costs being passed on to customers. We asked our colleagues on LinkedIn - how will it affect overall design trends in the data center industry across the nation?

    9. Why Vendors, Not Users, Must Cut Phone Emissions

      Why Vendors, Not Users, Must Cut Phone Emissions

      Turning off your phone charger is a good thing. But it turns out the people who can really reduce the emissions from mobile devices are the manufacturers. And eventually, data center owners will be involved. By 2019, people charging their phones will be responsible for around 13 Megatonnes of CO2 equivalent, according to a report from Juniper Research. That sounds a lot, and it is indeed the same as the current carbon footprint of a smallish country, say Jamaica or Macedonia. But it’s around zero percent of humanity’s total greenhouse emissions. So who cares?

    10. GE Claims Fuel Cell Breakthrough, Starts Pilot Production

      GE Claims Fuel Cell Breakthrough, Starts Pilot Production

      General Electric has developed a way to convert natural gas using a combination of fuel cell and an engine, an approach it hopes will finally result in broad adoption of stationary fuel cells. The industrial giant's research arm on Tuesday disclosed details on its solid-oxide fuel cell research efforts and said it has started a pilot line at a factory in upstate New York to manufacture the generators. As first reported here last year, GE has achieved relatively high efficiency by coupling two generators and hopes to bring down costs by using cheaper materials.
