DigiPlex was announced as the winner of two categories: “Best Data Centre Energy Solution” and “Marketer of the Year”, a new category introduced this year. For both, judges cited the ambitious steps DigiPlex has taken to redefine clean and sustainable practice for data centres, and how it has brought that message to a global audience with innovative marketing and communications efforts.
Last year, renewables further increased their standing as an important sector for the German economy. This is one of the findings of the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research, which recently published its latest calculations. According to these, investments in renewables installations increased to €16.2 billion last year, which is €1.1 billion or 7% more than in the preceding year (€15.1 billion).
A new system devised by MIT engineers could provide a low-cost source of drinking water for parched cities around the world while also cutting power plant operating costs. About 39 % of all the fresh water withdrawn from rivers, lakes, and reservoirs in the U.S. is earmarked for the cooling needs of electric power plants that use fossil fuels or nuclear power, and much of that water ends up floating away in clouds of vapor. But the new MIT system could potentially save a substantial fraction of that lost water — and could even become a significant source of clean, safe drinking water for coastal cities where seawater is used to cool local power plants.
