I honestly don’t know if this is possible or if it has been done anywhere but our aim in CIX is to try to build a carbon neutral data centre.
Carbon neutral means that the data centre doesn’t create greenhouse gases and add to the climate change problems the planet is experiencing.
Data centres are notorious for requiring vast amounts of electricity and as we are based in a nuclear-free country, it is difficult to use lots of electricity without producing significant quantities of CO2.
We have a strategy document on how we can achieve this but to get there we need other partners to buy into the idea.
How revolutionary do you think this idea is? Would you put your racks/servers into a carbon neutral data centre over and above a carbon producing one?
