Wind energy and seaweeds for CO2-neutral datacenters


The storage of data causes an enormous consumption of energy. Computing centres are still predominantly operated with electricity from fossil fuels such as coal or oil and emit a large amount of CO2. However, the energy of the future will consist of renewable energies such as solar power, biogas or wind energy.


In Schleswig-Holstein, or more exactly in North Frisia, the subject is being taken up. The Greentec Campus offers wind energy for the operation of the wind cloud server farm. The waste heat from the farm is used to grow seaweeds, which in turn are eating CO2.


Plus, you can work there too.
