As we surge toward a digital future, our data consumption is skyrocketing. But this comes at a cost – data centers consume vast amounts of energy – 70 billion kWh/year in the US alone!
We need sustainable solutions, and the circular economy model could be the answer. Companies like Start Campus lead the charge, integrating sustainability into their operations by reusing and recycling resources.
A key example is their data center in Sines, Portugal. They’ve leveraged cold ocean water for cooling, reducing construction costs and creating a zero-consumption system. We can optimize resource use and lessen environmental impact by choosing locations wisely.
