A Novel Dew Point Cooling Technology for Data Centre Cooling: Research Progress and Demonstration Projects – in association with The DCA
The dew point cooling system, funded by EU H2020, developed at the University’s Centre for Sustainable Energy Technologies, improves on conventional evaporative cooling systems, producing cold air to Data Centre with very high efficiency. This technology can lead to an 80% - 90%reduction in electricity consumption and carbon emissions compared to traditional cooling systems. The high-performance dew point cooling system, has been demonstrated in University of Hull and Hull City Council and has saved the council £50,000 in electricity used by its cooling system and reduced the council's carbon footprint by 82.5 tonnes of CO2 equivalent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per year. With a successful trial completed, the team is seeking further funding and cooperation to continue the work.
