Intel has partnered with South Korean telecom company KT Corporation to develop energy-efficient technology to reduce power consumption at data centers. The new system, if applied to every KT-owned center, would save $7.6 million annually. Implementing the new system in every data center in South Korea would save up to 39.6 million. Intel has also tested Green Revolution Cooling’s oil-based coolant for server storage, and last month, the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory selectedIntel and Hewlett Packard to provide what it says will be the world’s most energy efficient data center.

Britain’s energy minister plans to support pilot carbon capture and storage projects, CCS, a technology the U.K. is counting on to reduce climate-warming emissions and to develop as a new export product. Britain considers CCS as a key technology for reducing carbon emissions in the energy sector. The government has launched a $1.6 billion competition to fund one or more projects.

The Fauji Fertilizer Company, one of Pakistan’s largest producers of fertilizer, has invested $134 million in FCC Energy Limited, to develop the country’s first 50-megawatt wind power project. A shortage of electricity has adversely affected the economic growth and sustainability of Pakistan’s industrial sector.
