For China’s Massive Data Centers, A Push to Cut Energy and Water Use

China’s 1.37 billion people, many of them fully connected to the internet, use an enormous amount of energy as they email, search the Web, or stream video. Indeed, the Chinese government estimates that the country’s data centers alone consume more electricity than all of Hungary and Greece combined.
