What if every time you watched YouTube it helped heat your hot water….for free??!
Data centres are the beating heart of our digital lives and consume a tremendous amount of electricity. Unfortunately, they also waste a lot of electricity and so companies like Heata are pioneering ways to capture that waste heat for domestic hot water. Even better than that, they’ve found a way to bring the waste heat closer to your home via distributed servers and the cloud.
Confused? Science fiction?! Imogen met the Heata team and visited an installation to make sense of this repurposed tech!
