Data centers account for a significant amount of energy usage and pollution world-wide.

This is an open innovation project by Indigo STARS (an Oregon nonprofit) to help accelerate green data center design, including architecture.

"The strategic deployment of data centers can help to serve resource challenged communities with potable water, electricity and heat in addition to the primary services they meet." --Benjamin Brink
