"Data centers can play the transformative role for green digitalization that formula 1 has played for innovating the car industry"

I love this quote-- really gets across the point of why you aggressively push the envelope with innovative projects. It's not necessarily that those new findings will be spread everywhere, but they provide roadmaps, lessons learned, and the right technology then trickles down to where it's needed.

Interesting way of looking at technology advancements. No doubt that digital technology is smaller and more energy efficient than traditional systems. However, the link between it and CO2 emission savings is unclear to me. The reality is that renewables have much larger form factors than traditional energy, which has been one of the reasons why they are more expensive and often a less attractive alternative than traditional fossil fuels. for instance, to use wind to provide energy to New York City would require building wind farms the size of NYC, which obviously is not only impractical but also would be harm the environment in many ways.
