Cooling Power Cuts Energy Use at NREL



This session details the test of eight high-performance immersion-cooled servers at the National Renewable Energy Center which measured the system’s energy efficiency as well as its ability recover waste heat for use in building heating systems. The result: A cooling PUE of 1.01 while recovering up to 98 percent of the server heat energy for reuse at 120°F. Now running operational loads at NREL's ESIF High-Performance Computing Center, this system demonstrates potential to become a standard cooling design template for cloud, edge and enterprise-class data centers.


Learning Objectives:
1. Evaluate the effectiveness of air vs. liquid cooling for electronics
2. Identify instances in which data centers do not require fans, mechanical refrigeration or adiabatic walls
3. Understand liquid immersed server technology and its energy-saving benefits
4. Analyze the use of air conditioning or heat in buildings with liquid-cooled data centers
