Solar Power – This data center’s 624 solar cells are capable of generating 152kW of power. On a sunny day, they can account for more than 16% of total power usage.
Passive Cooling – At this facility, we’ve deployed passive cooling systems by KyotoCooling. The Kyoto wheel, or cooling wheel, transfers heat from the data center to the outside air without contaminating the air supply. The system provides free cooling 75% of the time, reducing cooling costs.
UPS Flywheel – Most data centers use a battery-based UPS. At this data center, we use a flywheel UPS system that stores energy kinetically. The flywheels spin at a constant 7,000 RPM. Flywheels don’t need to be replaced and are completely non-toxic.
