Almost all electricity used in a data centre is transformed into heat. Today, standard the procedure is to remove this heat into the atmosphere. This is a waste of the earth’s resources, a waste of energy, and a waste of money. Today a data centre is considered “green” if the electricity used is produced from renewable sources. The question is, what should we do with the heat that is produced within the data centre? Fortum has, together with Bahnhof and a few other companies, developed and proven a concept to recycle excess heat from data centres. The audience will learn about how to use excess heat from data centres to warm up buildings and hot water across Stockholm, thus turning a cost into revenue, higher efficiency, and a better business and environment. At the same time the data centre gains an extra redundant cooling system!
