This facility combines a datacenter with an arboretum that is used to grow plants to study climate change. The Condorcet datacenter in Paris, France is designed to be energy efficient and uses waste energy to heat the arboretum.
Compared with a standard datacenter, Condorcet should reduce power consumption by 28 million kWh, which equates to 2,500 tons of CO2 per year.
The arboretum is designed to create climatic conditions similar to those predicted for France by 2050.
