Aligned Energy uses a combination of techniques to cool data centers in a way that is both cost-efficient and more sustainable than traditional cooling systems.

The data centres that support our online lives consume huge amounts of energy for cooling — almost 2% of the global electricity supply in 2015, resulting in great cost not only to the environment, but also to the businesses that run data centres. Aligned Energy offers improvements to the triple bottom line through 80% and 85% cuts in energy and water use respectively. Its system has also been assessed as one of the most secure and reliable on the market, minimising chances of downtime, which can cost serious money and reputational damage in the industry.

This solution was featured in Keeping it Cool market of the 2018 Global Opportunity Report, and was selected based on the criteria of that report. 

How the Global Goals are addressed

Clean Water and Sanitation

This cooling system increases data centres' water-use efficiency, addressing the issue of water scarcity

Affordable and Clean Energy

By using up to 80% less energy than traditional systems, this solution reduces the energy intensity of this power-hungry industry.

Climate Action

With a lower energy intensity comes a lower carbon intensity, helping to reduce the carbon footprint of data centres.
