Concrete Block Pulley Systems Could Recover Energy from Data Center Gensets Testing
Data center generators are for backup, but they are fired up every month to test them, producing energy which the WZMH says normally goes to waste. A research project by WZMH and Toronto's Ryerson University has designed a energy collection system that would use that energy to raise concrete blocks in an elevator, storing potential energy which could then be stored in batteries or used as a green energy source for nearby buildings.
Regular testing wastes energy. WZMH says that this energy has potential...
