Geothermal and heat recovery in Germany

In 2016, Sonepar Deutschland Information Services will host a major new data center. The buildings constructed for this purpose will be at the cutting-edge of energy efficiency. Geothermal energy will power systems for heating and cooling offices, using 62 energy pillars that will also serve as the building’s foundations. Other innovations will include an autonomous cooling system for the computer servers, high-precision climatic chambers for regulating temperature and humidity levels in the printing room, electronic energy monitoring systems (for air conditioning, lighting, ventilation and even emergency generators) and continuous detection of all energy flows. Awesome!
