Iceotope has developed a patented liquid cooling 
system that can halve the massive amount of energy used by data centres, reducing CO2 emissions and also allowing users to save on space and capital expenditure.

To cool IT without traditional fans, Iceotope encases a server’s electronics in modules, filled with a non-flammable dielectric coolant, which is an inert, non-conducting, hyper-convecting fire extinguishant that is roughly 1,850 times more effective at moving heat than air and can be in direct contact with electronics because it does not conduct electricity.

Iceotope servers are virtually silently, can operate anywhere on the planet and can be plumbed into central heating systems to actively heat sites via domestic radiators.

The UK is believed to 
have the greatest concentration of data centres on the planet, covering more 
than seven million sq ft and consuming more than 6.4 GW of power each year - equivalent to 6,000,000 households.
