Post Twelve: A report from a seminar on the green data centre

Another day, another darkened room.

This time I am learning about green data centes.

Apparently a PC needs 380 tonnes kilograms of coal to keep it on for a year.

That’s terrifying.

The interest here (the room has probably 100 people in it) seems motivated by a curious intersection of environmentatlism and the fact power costs money.

Or, as the speaker from Intel just said: “Being environmentally aware is good for business.”

Hurrah!
