NEC and NTT develop energy-saving cooling system using greener HFO refrigerant

Japan-based NEC and NTT Communications have developed an air cooling system which they claim slashes air conditioning power consumption in data centres.

The energy-saving system is the first to use a new low-pressure refrigerant called R1224yd, developed by Japanese manufacturer AGC and originally designed for centrifugal chillers, which in addition to being more energy-efficient is more environmentally friendly than other commonly-used refrigerants.
