Green data centre Research park Zellik - Flux50 feasibility study
A CO2-neutral supercomputer data centre, in an urban environment, for which the required electrical power is generated locally and sustainably as much as possible, in order to operate as much off-grid as possible and where the residual heat of the data centre is recovered and valorised using a thermal grid connected to all the thermal users in the Research Park Zellik. Meeting the energy requirements of the data centre with intermittent, renewable energy sources is the challenge. Creating an energy efficient data centre will be key as well as the availability of local energy storage capacity. A leap in knowledge on new communication solutions is needed and an efficient communication system will be engineered that reliable connects the data centre with the energy suppliers.
