Vigilent and our partners will use AI to eliminate wasteful cooling in data centers and telecom facilities, cutting annual carbon emissions by 50 million metric tons.
Cooling accounts for about 40% of emissions from such facilities, and is extremely difficult to manage given the variability in heat generated by computer processing equipment. To avoid thermal risk, many facility operators use too much cooling, wasting huge amounts of energy and increasing carbon emissions.
By applying AI to this complex problem, Vigilent can dynamically deliver cooling when and where it’s needed, reducing thermal risk and energy spending, and minimizing the carbon footprint of each facility. Vigilent technology is already operating in over 600 data centers and telecom exchanges. When AI technology is fully deployed to optimize cooling on a global basis, we project that annual carbon emissions can be reduced by over 500 million tons.
WE ARE ALSO COMMITTED TO CARBON REDUCTION IN OTHER TYPES OF BUILDINGS,
including office, food processing, indoor agriculture, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. In the future, Vigilent will work with industrial partners in these sectors to deliver significant energy savings and environmental benefits.
