Intel’s micro-turbines are a proof-of-concept project, in which Intel hopes to collect data that will help the company better understand green power and identify ways to continue evolving its sustainability programs. This is just the latest milestone in Intel’s longstanding commitment to innovation and environmental sustainability.
