Innovative ways to cool data centres

Data centre heat is a nuisance that must be managed sustainably since digital infrastructure of today is less energy-efficient than the incandescent light bulb of yesterday. Digital processing unavoidably generates heat making everyone’s activity in the cloud have an environmental impact. The natural progression of building the infrastructure of tomorrow will need to look at more innovative ways to cool data centres that harvests the digitally generated heat to displace other energy intensive activities that need to generate primary heat. We will look at some potential approaches to waste heat recovery as a means of cooling a data centre
