Rotterdam: The Smartdc team was pleased to be presented with the Sustainability Award by Computable for its pioneering heat pump project. This recognition is a testament to Smartdc’s commitment to advancing innovation in the data center industry in a greener and more sustainable direction.
The Computable Sustainability Award recognizes organizations that excel in environmental responsibility and innovation. Smartdc’s residual heat project sets the bar for innovation in the industry and demonstrates the transformative potential of data centers in the fight against climate change.
Smartdc’s residual heat project efficiently captures and repurposes excess heat generated within its data centers. Instead of letting this energy go to waste, Smartdc channels it into heating over 100 different offices located in the UNESCO Heritage site, the Van Nelle Fabriek, reducing the carbon footprint of its operations with 800.000 cubic square meters of gas saved.
The project’s success can be attributed to Smartdc’s commitment to staying at the forefront of sustainable data center practices. The residual heat project has not only significantly decreased the company’s overall energy consumption but has also brought about a series of benefits for the communities in which Smartdc operates. The local heating networks that now benefit from Smartdc’s surplus heat have reported lower energy bills and reduced reliance on natural gas, thus contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable future.
Smartdc’s success in sustainability isn’t an isolated achievement. It is a part of the company’s ongoing efforts to redefine the data center industry and set an example for others to follow. As Smartdc continues its pioneering work in sustainable data center management, the company remains committed to finding new and creative solutions to lower the carbon footprint of its operations and to support a more sustainable future for the planet. The Sustainability Award from Computable serves as a powerful acknowledgment of Smartdc’s dedication to transforming the data center industry into a force for positive change in the global sustainability landscape.
