 Project objective

There are around 8,6M Data Centers (DCs) worldwide which contribute to our daily activities such as on-line searching, social networking, telecommunication, banking, and on-line shopping. DCs consume around 3% of today’s world global energy supply, accounting for 2% of total greenhouse gas emissions. If a DC were to suddenly stop operating, much of the computer-connected world would be affected and it could cost businesses millions of euros. In order for these DCs to operate with minimal to zero downtime sufficient power and cooling is required. In Europe, the IT sector consumed 8-10% of all generated electricity, and all DCs combined were responsible for 2% of all energy consumption. More than 50% of this energy is used to cool the IT system (approx. 50% of the ongoing running costs) and as much as 80% of this energy is wasted as heat. Reducing the power consumption and improving efficiency of DCs to ultimately reduce operating costs and support the industry growth has become a major challenge with many efforts from governments and companies around the world. With an increasing number of high power density DCs being built, traditional air-cooling systems (most popular cooling for DCs) are unable to properly cool high-power density IT environments. Instead, liquid-cooling technologies on the market can support higher power densities, but do not provide high-availability, lack flexibility, are messy to handle and energy is still wasted, which is why this technology hasn’t yet become the norm in DCs. Asperitas, our start-up, has developed AIC24; a modular liquid cooling system that can meet the needs of high power density environments in availability and ease of use while reducing energy use by 50%, total cost of ownership by 35%, CapEx by 25%, and ensuring energy is recycled. In 5 years from completion of the project, we expect to gain €26,2 million in cumulative profits, hire 38 new employees and achieve a ROI of €6,48 per euro invested in this project.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "AIC24" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
