More and more data centers operate on renewable energies. This is the case of the Lefdal Mine Datacenter, built in an old mine in Norway. It is directly supplied by hydroelectric power stations and a wind farm. This makes it the first carbon neutral datacenter in Europe.
Naturally cool them
For its data center located in Hamina, Finland, Google has created a cooling system running on seawater. The Microsoft company has decided to immerse its servers off the coast of Scotland, which allows both cooling and recovering energy from sea currents.
The heat released by data centers can be used to generate energy. In Stockholm, the “Stockholm Data Parks” project aims to install data centers in the city center, to heat houses directly.
