Growth in data generation driving demand for data centres, leading to an increase in their energy needs and GHG emissions
Rapid digitalisation and the surge in demand for cloud-based services is expected to drive the demand for data centres globally. However, data centres have a significant environmental footprint owing to their high energy and water usage, especially for cooling purposes. To limit global warming to close to 1.5°C or 2°C, large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are needed.
Investing in climate technology to contribute towards net zero carbon emissions.
Iceotope’s technology offers large data centre servers the opportunity to reduce their energy and water use and contribute towards net zero carbon emissions. The company’s environmentally efficient technology reduces the energy and water required to cool data centre servers and contributes to the achievement of net-zero emissions for the data centre industry. We invested in Iceotope to support further commercialization of its technology and enable wider adoption for the impact to be realized at scale, including across data centres in Asia.
