Nerdalize, a Dutch startup, has found a practical use for the huge amount of energy wasted in the cloud storage sector. They’re installing cloud servers in households and using the heat to warm water.
According to the company’s website, “Combined, data centers use up more electricity than India and generate more CO2 emissions than the airline industry.” A significant proportion of this electricity is used to cool servers, so rather than attempt to negate this heat, Nerdalize decided to develop a beneficial way to use it to heat water is people’s homes.
Through this system, Nerdalize will make a profit by selling data space; homeowners will save an estimated €300 ($ 337) a year in heating costs; and companies will save 50 percent on their data storage expenses. Beyond the financial benefit, the system also reduces the carbon emissions of each house by up to three tons.
While some logistical aspects of the system may prove trickier than others — such as maintaining the security of the servers and fixing them when they break — the idea has proven wildly popular. A second pilot trial will start in 42 homes in August, and the company’s Symbid crowdfunding campaign far exceeded its target with weeks to spare.
We clearly need a green energy revolution, and the only way to get there is to incorporate as many revolutionary ideas as possible. The innovative concepts proposed by companies like Nerdalize are vital for the future of our planet.
