As data centers worldwide consume an estimated 70 billion kWh per year, an innovative energy-saving solution is needed. Enter portfolio company LiquidCool Solutions. Recent testing confirmed the company’s liquid-submerged server (LSS) technology not only maintains target temperatures under heavy computational load, but that the hot liquid could be used to heat buildings more efficiently than…
If your laptop has ever become uncomfortably hot, you’ve had a taste of what data centers worldwide are up against: Server components approaching 100 degrees Celsius (212° F), with hundreds to thousands of servers per center. With data centers on average consuming an estimated 70 billion kWh1 per year, a disruptive energy-saving solution is needed, and a liquid submerged server (LSS) technology from LiquidCool Solutions (LiquidCool) might be the answer…

The IN2 Program Management Team recently released a White Paper on the IN2 Summit findings. The rich dialogue that resulted from the IN2 Summit revealed that the food, energy, water nexus provides tremendous opportunities and potential for impact for the IN2 program expansion. As such, we’ll be continuing to engage key stakeholders and subject matter experts to further investigate how the IN2 model can best be leveraged in this technology vertical.
