The Pathway to Net Zero Water Data Centres

April 15, 2021

Water scarcity is a growing problem, according to the UN, and data centres consume billions of litres every year. As a result, increasing server densities and chipsets operating at higher temperatures are driving a need for effective cooling solutions. Quite often, these cooling solutions rely on water. Operators must balance the challenges of water storage and distribution, biological contamination, corrosion, fouling, and scaling, while ensuring sustainable operations. Getting water usage right can have significant benefits. It means saving money on both water and power consumption, reducing downtime risk, and increasing the overall sustainability of the data centre. This event looks at how new technology and wastewater recycling could help these essential facilities to curb their water usage, and the drive towards the net zero data centre.
