Bangalore: Search giant, Google announced that it has made a new hire through Dr. Arun Majumdar, to drive its energy efficiency and to provide guidance to the company on its highly-scalable energy usage. This is Google’s second high profile signing; as futurist Ray Kurzweil joined Google two days ago.



Dr. Arun Majumdar is a material scientist, engineer and an IIT - Bombay graduate who was U.S. President Barack Obama's nominee for the Under Secretary of Energy between November 30, 2011 and May 15, 2012. Majumdar was also nominated to be the first director of U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), where his position was dubbed as America’s “Green Czar”.



Prior to this, Majumdar worked as a Professor in mechanical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. His expertise doesn’t end there as he also ran the Environmental Energy Technologies Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.



When it comes to power consumption, Google is recognized as one of the largest power consumers across the globe, as the company sustains large server warehouses, global offices and highly efficient data centers. Off late, Google has been showing keen interest on green energy and energy conservatory methods since it has deployed some of these methods successfully throughout its data centers. So the latest hire clearly indicates that the search firm is looking for more of an appropriate and well-organized energy and power intake.
