The US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory has hooked up with HP, Intel, and partners to design a new hybrid supercomputer and an energy-efficient data center wrapper for it that will – among other green gains – use the exhaust heat from the supercomputer to heat adjacent offices. After all, when you're …
“Hammond says that the data center will have no mechanical chillers and will only use evaporative cooling, which is a choice you can make in the dry Colorado air.”
Ah, so instead of using electricity, they are using scarce water. Brilliant.
Two words: water cycle.
@AC - water=power unless you collect it from rainfall.
