WUE: How elevated water temperature can dramatically reduce water usage

Whilst data centers are more efficient than they have ever been on a whole, there is still a vast amount of improvement that can be made, in particular on both energy consumption for cooling and the consumption of water in the requirement for adiabatic cooling. One of the major active equipment manufacturers has openly said that a realistic figure for water use per mW can be 68,000 litres of water a day. Unfortunately information is scarce and so a conservative figure of 1000mW can be used across the country, this would potentially give a usage of around 68 million litres of water per day.
