Did you know that data centers now consume 3% of the world’s electricity and that’s set to treble over the next decade? All the Gigawatts of electricity they consume each day to power the cloud ends up as heat and most of it is simply thrown away into the atmosphere!
At Green Processing we think throwing away heat is crazy and we’re obsessed with capturing this waste heat and re-using it where it is needed…in homes around the world. We are the inventors of data furnace technology for on demand heating of peoples homes and we’ve been working on perfecting the technology for the last 9 years.
So instead of burning gas or oil in a boiler, our data furnaces’ are stacked full of computer processors, the same processors found today all over the world in vast data centers and with our patented technology we capture all of the heat they produce. Instead of throwing the heat away, we re-cycle it to heat peoples homes and hot water. Free heating of buildings and water as a by-product of computer processing, or free computer processing as a by-product of heating, depending on how you want to look at it.
All Data Center Electricity Ends Up As Heat?
That’s right, all of the electricity computers consume, as well as providing all of the computing work, ends up as heat. In fact data center operators typically consume lots more electricity to power massive cooling systems to get that heat out, just so they can throw it away into the atmosphere! When we realised this we saw a massive opportunity to radically improve the harmful environmental impact of not just the data centers, but also all of our home heating systems.
Can You Really Put A Data Center In Peoples Homes?
Our data furnaces are each a micro data center, installed in a home where the heat they produce is wanted. The computer processors and other hardware are all standard and exactly as would be found in a typical data center. The clever part we add is compacting them into a small secure device suitable to be installed in homes and extracting all the heat so that when it is needed nothing is wasted. Our data furnaces are designed to replace existing gas, electric or oil fired boilers and give home owners hot water and heating as and when they want it.
The wait is over…
We’ve spent years developing the technology, waiting on the roll out of fast broadband connections to everyone’s homes and for the price of some key technology elements to fall and make it affordable. Now that’s happened our data furnaces are set to be the perfect solution.
- Data processing users get ultra powerful and ultra green computing instances to get their work done fast and economically .
- Home owners get a low cost ultra green heating system
- Together we are all one step closer to greener future
