Our energy use is growing, and so is the strain on the planet’s energy resources. Data centers are centralized locations that enable our use of the Internet, our smart phones, streaming of TV shows and all cloud services. Most of the data services we take for granted and use daily rely on access and availability of data centers.
Asetek’s patented technology can reduce the energy data centers use for cooling by up to 50%. This is done by cooling the processors directly instead of cooling the entire rack.
But regrettably a lot of the energy used in data centers is wasted. Air-cooled data centers cool the whole server room, and the energy spent cannot easily be recovered.
With Asetek’s technology we can recoup the energy spent cooling the processors and and provide the current remote heating network in Denmark with 60°C water – which is the temperature experts tell us is ideal for remote heating. Together we could heat the cities of Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense, with only the heat from Danish data centers.
Total energy use by data centers can be reduced by up to 25% since our technology of cooling only the processors, not the whole room, is a lot more efficient. So not only do you save energy going into the data center, you can reuse the energy going out.
Did you know? This saving corresponds to the CO2 footprint of all civilian air traffic…
