With their rapidly growing carbon footprint, data centres have been focusing on keeping their environmental impact in check. Technology heavyweights are already streamlining computing processes, switching to renewables and seeking more efficient ways to cool data centres and recycle their waste heat.

The EU-funded BodenTypeDC project has been at the forefront of an initiative to create an energy- and resource-efficient, sustainable data centre. It was recently acknowledged for its progress. BodenTypeDC’s facility received the Nonprofit Industry Initiative of the Year at DCD Awards 2019, according to a news release on the project website. The category involves “recognizing the great initiatives to educate and influence the data center sector that NGOs, professional bodies and academia put together,” as stated on the Data Centre Dynamics website.

“Funded by the European Horizon 2020 project, this prototype 500kW facility in the small town of Boden uses every trick in the book to lower its environmental impact: it runs on renewable energy and doesn’t have batteries or gensets.”
