Heat from Facebook Data Centre warms Danish homes | TheMayor.EU | Energy Transition in Europe | www.energy-cities.eu | Scoop.it

The Danish city of Odense is home to one of Facebook’s data centres – large facilities that house tens of thousands of computer servers that are meant to ensure that our online experience keeps running smoothly. One of the drawbacks of these types of facilities, that has been a problem for many of their owners, has been their environmental impact – namely, the issue of keeping all that tech cooled down and making use of all the excess heat that it generates.
The Odense facility, however, has found a way to make the best out of their predicament and help out the entire city in achieving its climate ambitions.
