Enabling data centers to manage compute-intensive transactions sustainably and profitably
June 9, 2022
Cryptocurrency mining is compute-intensive and uses a significant amount of energy — the mining of Bitcoin alone consumes 1% of the world’s energy. The only way for miners to maximize profit is by utilizing specialized, high-performance servers that run at maximum capacity 24/7/365.

Only 800 meters form the site, Hima Seafood has started the construction of the world largest onshore trout farm. When set in operation in 2023, it will use the excess heat from Green Mountain’s facility.
With data centers on par with the aviation industry for their contribution to the world’s CO2 emissions, alternative refrigerants in data center cooling systems have the potential to reduce emissions equivalent to 43.5–50.5 gigatons of carbon dioxide from 2020 to 2050.
Demonstrating sustainability and performance of hydrogen-fueled combined heat and power system

Supported and partially funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), the project will be led by Caterpillar in collaboration with District Energy St. Paul and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
By proactively performing the actions required to keep machinery running smoothly, companies can operate efficiently even in the worst conditions — meaning less costly maintenance and replacements, which ultimately improves overall resiliency.
Regarding mission critical applications specifically, rubber expansion joints are used in mechanical rooms mated to pumps and tanks, and stainless steel expansion joints are used in long runs of pipe to assist with thermal and seismic movement.
On Demand The pressure on data center operators to reduce carbon emissions and water consumption is growing—from the market, municipalities, and their own organizations. As more businesses announce their plans to become carbon-free and water neutral, data center operators are responding with a multi-phase approach to meeting these objectives. This webinar will share the roadmap leading data center operators have taken to reducing carbon emissions and water consumption and the technologies and best practices that are making it possible.
