Photos: Telecity's scientific sideline - arboretum heated like it's 2050
This is Telecity's Condorcet datacentre, recently opened in Paris.
The datacentre is designed to be as energy efficient as possible and has a neat sideline in using waste energy to heat an arboretum for growing plants for scientific research into climate change.
Condorcet takes up 3,400 square metres of space and cost the company €48m to build. It's Telecity's third installation in Paris. Compared to a standard datacentre, Condorcet should reduce power consumption by 28 million kWh which equates to 2,500 tonnes of CO2 per year.
