Equinixhas a long-term goal of using 100 percent clean and renewable energy for its global platform, and continues to make advancements in the way it designs, builds and operates its data centers with high energy-efficiency standards. SV10 sets the green standard for future Equinix IBX builds. It is a LEED Silver Certified building that meets the strict water reduction standards and will feature indirect evaporative cooling ( IDEC) technology which dramatically reduces water use; hot aisle containment; accessibility to and from public transportation; and rooftop solar and fuel cells for sustainable energy production.
