The Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center (MGHPCC) a new computer research facility located in Holyoke, MA and shared by five area universities including MIT, was granted LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification on October 29, according to the MIT News Office.
The building is the first university data-center in the U.S. to be LEED Platinum certified. Its power distribution and exhaust systems were designed to use half the power of other systems.
The LEED Program, which is run by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), "is a program that provides third-party verification of green buildings," according to the program's website. LEED Platinum is the highest level of certification in the program.
