Going beyond ‘consumption’.
The industry has an understandable concern with power usage and efficiencies, reflected in the preoccupation with PUE. With this in mind, our solutions are IT-driven, enabling us to match cooling environments to IT infrastructure requirements. This means that power is only used when and where it is needed. Deploying closed-loop water systems maximises energy efficiency further by enabling us to run the IT at higher operational temperatures. This has the added benefit of reducing water consumption.
But what if we could reframe data centres not just as consumers of energy, but as energy producers as well? We aim to precisely do that, creating designs which – location depending – allow for power to be generated via on site Combined Heat & Power engines. Using CHP not only avoids having to rely on the grid as the primary source of power but can also help reduce clients’ carbon footprint if the heat is also utilised as a source of energy.
