Google is in news triangulating its platform including, Hummingbird, Renewable Energy and removing iGoogle. The Google model is worth observing as a company engaged across platforms creating a nexuses for innovation  and sustainability.  The focus of “Google aims for 100-per-cent renewable energy to power new $600-million European data ” centre” is one more path to reducing cost and producing efficiency in power.

My forecast was that technology giant, Google will innovate the energy mix to support its data centers formulating the smart grid prime directive that can aid the overall infrastructure as seen in New York through its wiring framework advancing other organizations tie into the grid.

Today, the “search giant says its existing Finland centre is one of its most advanced and efficient, with a high-tech cooling system that uses seawater from the Baltic Sea to reduce energy usage.”

It is important to understand, “Google has 19 data centres worldwide, with 70 offices in more than 40 countries employing some 30,000 people.” This worldwide integration is one webbing producing a fortification that can enhance networks and outline new energy solutions for redundancy against power shortfalls.

“Google is investing 450 million euros ($608 million) to expand a data centre in southern Finland as part of Europe-wide development plans totalling hundreds of millions of euros,” reports The Vancouver Sun.

The investment comes on top of the 350 million euros it spent on converting an old paper mill, bought from paper maker Stora Enso in 2009, into one of its centres serving customers in Europe and worldwide. It started operations in 2011, and currently employs some 125 people in Hamina, 150 kilometres (95 miles) east of Helsinki.

Google Inc. says the Hamina centre is one of its most advanced and efficient, with a high-tech cooling system that uses seawater from the Baltic Sea to reduce energy usage and help keep computers running smoothly. In 2015, the plant will be primarily powered by wind energy and there are plans to meet future energy needs with “100% renewable energy.”

The company says the expansion will employ up to 800 engineering and construction workers at the plant and that new, permanent jobs will be created once the extension opens.

The work of Google is an example of how companies are changing infrastructure through national investment while serving the greater needs of the companies prime directive. The opportunity of technology companies is to advance green and sustainable models is by identifying risks and weaknesses to unleash innovation for the survival of it ecosystem
