From micro to macro: Cooling data centers from the inside out
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – In the U.S., data centers account for approximately 2% of total electricity consumption; a large percentage of that is for cooling high-performance microchips. Purdue University researchers have received a $1.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop cooling systems for these microchips, making data centers more efficient and saving energy that will help mitigate climate change.
The grant comes from the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), as part of its Cooling Operations Optimized for Leaps in Energy, Reliability, and Carbon Hyperefficiency for Information Processing Systems (COOLERCHIPS) program.
