When working at Siemens, I often met Robert of Siemens Milan, Italy, maybe the greatest Energy Efficiency designer for data centres in the whole country. He was not only good, he was an artist. But why should YOU care about datacenters?
First: you might have yourself at least 1 server, consuming between 500 and 1200 Watt. Second, maybe there is a datacenter in your neighbourhood, giving loads of thermal energy. An example is described in the article of Peter Gerhardt, May 16, on www.tagesschau.de (in German), saying that the heat from the many data centres in the city of Frankfurt can deliver the heating for the whole city (93’000 inhabitants + enterprises).
