Tackling the climate emergency has never been more urgent – actions to head off the consequences in our daily lives are necessary, now. To meet our ambitious climate targets in time, we need change, and fast – and a key driver for this to happen, is innovation.
Something certain is that it is not possible for us to continue to rely on fossil fuels if we are to slow down and even stop global warming significantly.
Open Compute Project (OCP) added environmental sustainability as a top-level project, and the nonprofit’s fifth tenet in a move to guarantee that sustainability is a core action designed from the beginning of all OCP projects.
This new high-priority project will set environmental reporting targets across all OCP projects, monitor compliance by developing high-level key performance indicators (KPIs) “that go beyond traditional data centre (PUE) Power use effectiveness,” and assemble sustainable technology roadmaps.
Circle B in Amsterdam focuses on lifecycle design and exploring best practices to design for sustainability and circularity. “OCP hardware specifications will continue to evolve to enable products to remain in use for as long as possible, and design for circularity to enable infrastructure within the data centre to be repurposed, and ultimately enable component and material recovery when decommissioned,”.
OCP’s adoption of sustainability as a tenet and top-level project builds upon its ongoing efforts focused on data centre immersion cooling, liquid cooling, and heat reuse – carbon emissions from construction materials and operations – advancing the circular economy; and the role of open and reusable firmware in creating sustainable data centre equipment.
