Cloud computing. Social Media. E-Commerce. Internet services. And so on.
We need to stay connected. We want “surf” on the web faster and faster.
But everything has a cost. Climate change is the main one.
Data Centres are notorious abusers of energy and are estimated to have the fastest growing carbon footprint from across the whole ICT (Information and Communication Technology) sector. The cooling system alone may account for up to 40% in average of the energy demand of a data centre.
SO COOL DATA is an innovative research project aimed to realize a more efficient cooling system for new and current Data Centres, with the objective of reducing their power consumption.
With your support we will study, design and build a Concentrated SOlar COOLing System for a DATAcenter with supercritical CO2 as heat transfer fluid.
The free energy of the sun and a natural refrigerant fluid with a low environmental impact: what a “green” combination!
SO COOL DATA is a new concept.
SO COOL DATA is the challenge.
Let ‘do it. Together.
