EcoCooling supports Government’s first Green GB Week
18th October 2018
Green GB Week will promote the scale of the opportunities to reduce emissions, grow the low carbon economy and create a better environment.
This year, Green GB Week (15-19 Oct) will focus on celebrating UK leadership on climate change, marking the 10-year anniversary of the Climate Change Act.
Climate change is one of the most urgent and pressing challenges we face today. Yet, as countries move to cleaner economic growth with new low carbon technologies and the more efficient use of resources, it represents one of the greatest industrial opportunities of our time.
At EcoCooling, nature and efficiency is at the very core of our business. Both in terms of how our cooling in generated – utilising the naturally occurring process of evaporation – and the way in which it offers huge environmental benefits compared to traditional refrigeration.
The only energy used in an evaporative cooling system is for the ventilation system fans and the small internal water pump within the unit. For more information please see our how evaporative cooling works page.
At EcoCooling, our mission is to save the country 1% on its total energy bill. That equivalent to shutting down a power station!
The savings shown below prove that clean growth can be achieved through energy efficient cooling: lowering carbon footprints and making economic savings at the same time, whilst increasing efficiency all around and increasing productivity in a variety of industries.
Energy Efficient Cooling for Data Centres – Savings
EcoCooling developed a calculator to estimate the possible energy savings for all of our systems, inputs include historical weather data and fan data. Cost analysis can be performed for any size data centre or telecoms room in most locations worldwide. Take a look at our CloudCooler range for HPC and cryptocurrency mining applications.
Example EcoCooling Energy Savings Report
Energy Efficient Cooling for Industrial Systems – Savings
Compared to a traditional refrigeration system the estimated energy savings are expected to be around 90%. A single EcoCooler, rated at 35kW, can show carbon savings of up to 10,000kg per year and cost less than 15p per hour to run.
PUE (Power Utilisation Effectiveness)
CREC® systems have assisted both new build and retrofit data centres to achieve PUEs of below 1.1. The fans that drive air flow are the most significant energy consumer in the system, and the use of efficient electronically commutated motors is instrumental in minimising energy use. Exploiting EC fan technology can reduce the power required further, meaning PUEs of 1.05 are now achievable in optimum environments. See our data centre case studies page for more information.
