How to Reduce your HPC Carbon Footprint

November 15, 2019

Faced with more extreme weather events and dangerous heat episodes concerns about global warming and carbon emissions are on the rise. Corporate and cloud data centers are, unfortunately, part of the problem. Today, global data centers account for as almost as much CO2 emissions as the entire airline industry and consume more electricity than the country of Iran.

What’s most concerning is the rate of growth. Fueled by growing internet traffic, AI and IoT, some worrisome models predict that information and communications technology may grow to 20% of global electricity consumption by 2030 from just 2% today. Getting to carbon-neutral data centers will be essential to combat global climate change.
