Loop heat pipe for waste heat recovery in data centres

Project description

Reusing waste heat from data centres

Today’s data centres (DC) consume vast amounts of energy and have one of the fastest-growing carbon footprints. It’s possible to reverse this trend by converting the energy consumed by a DC server into heat. The integration of two-phase cooling solutions designed around waste heat recovery can improve DC energy performance. Loop heat pipes (LHP), a highly efficient heat transportation device, is an attractive two-phase solution for cooling and waste heat recovery for DC. The EU-funded LEAP project will develop innovative waste heat transportation and conversion solutions for DC applications developing an original multi-scale porous structure, fabricating a high-performance LHP and characterising LHP and waste heat recovery technologies.
