      Editorial: Don’t believe the myth that corporations oppose green initiatives

      How to Reuse Waste Heat from Data Centers Intelligently

      Data centers worldwide are energy transformation devices. They draw in raw electric power on one side, spin a few electrons around, spit out a bit of useful work, and then shed more than 98 percent of the electricity as not-so-useful low-grade heat energy. They are almost the opposite of hydroelectric dams and wind turbines,

But local government goals to move to renewable energy may trump tighter tax regulation. Your data center may become a green data center even if isn't actively planning to do so today.
