Data servers create a lot of heat in 24-hour operations. The traditional reliance on air conditioning for data centre cooling is one of the reasons that data centres use so much energy.
But there are much more carbon-friendly routes to cooling. We have successfully applied innovative building architecture to channel natural cool air through a data centre. Innovative recovery systems can also pass excess heat into systems to warm homes in your communities.
Water scarcity is a very real threat in many locations around the globe, and relying on water for cooling systems is not a sustainable approach in such areas. Yet water provides a highly efficient source of cooling compared with other methods.
Our solution is to harness ‘low quality’ water for data centre cooling, rather than use public drinking water. Using wastewater from local utility companies delivers mutual benefits and much better long-term sustainability.
