Intelligent Cooling Algorithms, Google Data Center and Honda Manufacturing

Saving energy is something everyone knows is good when you can maintain environmental conditions for equipment.  Here are two different examples.  One is Google in a data centers with its servers and another from Honda in its painting process.  

First Google’s Joe Kava explains what was done to improve the cooling system performance.

2nd is Honda explaining what it did to save 25% energy consumption in its cooling system for painting processes.

At the 1:21 mark the Honda Engineer explains the energy savings.


This Honda video was so good it won an award.

Honda's Environmental Short Film Series Receives National Award Recognition

Telly Award recognizes outstanding "Green/Eco Friendly" video content

The first film in Honda's Environmental Short Film Series, Paint by Numbers, has been awarded two Telly Awards in the Green/Eco-Friendly and Social Responsibility categories. The Telly Awards, now in its 34th season, honors the best film and video productions, groundbreaking online video content, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs.

Honda's Environmental Short Film Series highlights some remarkable initiatives - dreamed up and developed by Honda associates - that fulfill the company's vision for reducing its environmental impact and creating a sustainable future. Paint by Numbers, the first film in the series, tells the story of how Honda engineer Shubho Bhattacharya was inspired to develop technology to reduce the energy needed to operate the auto body painting system at Honda's manufacturing plant in Marysville, Ohio. Auto body painting accounts for the most energy use in Honda's production process. With the help of his fellow associates, Bhattacharya conceived Honda's Intelligent Paint Technology, which has cut Honda's North American manufacturing CO2 emissions by about 10,000 metric tons per year.

"Honda associates are always dreaming up innovative ways to reduce our environmental impact," said Marcos Frommer of Honda North America, Inc., one of the producers of the film series. "Short films are a great way to share our associates' sustainability initiatives, and we're honored to receive this recognition from the Telly Awards."
