In the Netherlands water in residential buildings will heat the server station (video)
The developers of the original ideas of the company Nerdalize plan to use exhaust heat from servers to heat and supply hot water in homes. The idea of Dutch engineers is to move the locations of large server stations for cloud storage in a house. Taking the excess heat produced by server stations, for domestic purposes of occupants (heating and hot water), it is possible to obtain savings for all parties involved in the process. The residents of the houses to save on payment of utility bill, consumers of the services of the company Nerdalize on all servers save on rent, and the company itself is not necessary now to create a separate information data centers for server stations (40 percent of the energy in these centers is spent on cooling server equipment).
Trial heating equipment that uses the thermal energy of the servers were running Nerdalize in 2015 for several households, but showed a relatively modest result, heating only a small room. Advanced equipment this year will be installed in 42 homes and will ensure the complete consumption of the average family in hot water. Particularly specialists Nerdalize note that in addition to save house owners up to 300 euros per year will be reduced emissions of CO2 (up to 3 tons of carbon dioxide a year from one household).
Currently running a crowdfunding campaign of Nerdalize has already passed necessary for the implementation of the project minimum threshold in a quarter of a million euros (a sum approaching 350 thousand euros), and intends to collect 500 thousand to extend the program.
