On the path to green, clean and economical data centres throughout Europe

20 September 2022, 22:23

Data centres’ impact on the environment is a growing concern, especially since they use about 3 % of Europe’s electricity. The BodenTypeDC project built a data centre to address the need for more energy efficiency.

Data centres have become critical infrastructure in today’s world because they house vital assets such as networked computers, storage systems and equipment that keep all kinds of organisations running smoothly.

“Despite their importance to the continuity of daily operations, data centres need to become more energy efficient, reuse waste energy such as heat and use more renewable energy sources, with a view to becoming closer to carbon neutral by 2030,” explains Tor Björn Minde, Head of ICE Datacenter Unit at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.

Most data centres consume as much electricity in their cooling systems as in their servers. At a typical data centre, about 40 % of the electricity is consumed by cooling systems.

The EU-funded BodenTypeDC project constructed, tested and validated a data centre called Boden Type Data Center (BTDC) One that is both energy and cost efficient. It runs on renewable energy and relies on free air and evaporative cooling technologies without the need for refrigerants. It also uses low-carbon, locally sourced building materials.
