Data centres consume a significant amount of energy in order to run servers and also to cool them down, which generates a phenomenal amount of wasted heat.

Implementation Stories

Carbon Negative Web Hosting Services by Neutral-IT
Implemented by City of Paris in Paris (France) in 2016

The City of Paris implemented the Solution to heat the Butte-aux-Cailles swimming pool in its 13th district in 2016. 6 racks of 8 kW servers, totaling 48 kW of computing power were installed, with each rack connected upstream of the main heating system of the pool through heat exchangers and circulators. The economic model consisted of an investment of 20,000€ excluding VAT from the Paris City Hall to prepare the technical room for the data center installation and the sale of heat produced by the server room to the Paris City Hall for an amount of 80€ including VAT/MWh.


Annual income is 5k ⍬ from selling heat + 4k⍬ of energy savings = 9k⍬ savings per year = < 3 years roi
