Some of the world’s largest data centres can each contain many tens of thousands of IT devices and require more than 100 megawatts (MW) of power capacity—enough to power around 80,000 U.S. households (U.S. DOE 2020). 40% of the power use from a typical onshore data centre is used to cool equipment.
Global data centre electricity use in 2020 or around 1% of global final electricity demand.
used by the most efficient data centres for cooling for each 1 kWh used for IT equipment.
of power technology and communications companies secured by power purchase agreements in 2020.
The substantial electricity use of data centres also gives rise to concerns over carbon dioxide (CO²) emissions from processing and storage to data communication. Our expertise can help owners and operators of data centres and data hubs to transition to wave power for their cooling systems as well as a facility’s complete power supply. WaveRoller® is an ideal technology to be combined with both onshore and offshore data centre energy needs as filtered seawater can be used to replace inefficient air cooling and supply data centres with green electricity to reduce emissions and substantially reduce operational costs.
