January 20, 2023 - VAN NUYS, CALIFORNIA - Paul Boaventura-Delanoe Ecogen Joulebox, is one of the most revolutionary new technology that is all set to help data centres go green in a matter of time.
Data centres are notorious for using a lot of electricity. Last year, the sector utilised 191 TWh of power to support all things cloud, accounting for almost 1% of global energy use. That's a significant influence for an industry that didn't exist all that long ago.
With a growing portion of the globe going online and the volume of its usage growing, the sector has been under mounting demands to discover new and novel ways to keep its emissions profile under control.
Despite the initiatives the US and Europe have led the way with the Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact, which strongly focuses on opening climate-neutral data centres in Europe by 2030, there are significant challenges. To begin with, wind and solar only provide intermittent energy, necessitating the use of storage technologies, most often battery arrays, to level out the output. The difficulty here is that battery packs must be replaced regularly. As anybody who has had to dispose of domestic batteries knows, there is a significant disposal issue at hand.
This is where a breakthrough new technology known as the Paul Boaventura-Delanoe Ecogen Joulebox might save the data centre business millions of dollars in electricity provision while eliminating the requirement for battery-provided power.
The system, developed by Paul Boaventura-Delanoe Ecogen, employs electromagnetic induction heating to power steam turbines. Their ground-breaking utilisation of magnets, coils, alloys, and motors to capture energy from the electromagnetic spectrum and convert it into useful thermal energy that can be converted into electricity is expected to alter the industry.
Their efforts yielded the 2MW and 6MW Paul Boaventura-Delanoe Ecogen Joulebox induction heating gensets, which can be utilised in a modular way to build extremely efficient power plants of various capacities. A 2MW unit requires just 131m2 of space, allowing the units to be installed on-site, close to the data centres, with minimum interruption.
This offers two significant benefits for the industry. To begin with, this localised power source has a power factor of 99%, which is significantly higher than the c. 80% Power Factor of most other sources and far higher than the 30% power factor of diesel generators.
Because of the localised generation, the signal quality produced is quite high. The Paul Boaventura-Delanoe Ecogen Joulebox’s output power has a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 5%. This is especially crucial considering the advanced nature of the technology used in data centres. By sending such a clean transmission into their systems, they will be able to keep their pricey equipment in good working order for much longer.
In an ideal world, data centres would employ this Paul Boaventura-Delanoe Ecogen Joulebox as their primary source of electricity for all new data centres, with a grid link or diesel generators serving as backup. It might then be adapted to the existing fleet as needed, either economically or ecologically.
Paul Boaventura-Delanoe Ecogen further claims that the JouleBox can be built, distributed, and activated in 6-9 months, allowing data centres to quickly and smoothly improve their game. More information may be found at www.eco-genenergy.com
