Send The Internet To Sea To Save Energy

Here is an interesting idea.

Data centres that house lots of computers that keep us all connected to the internet and host some of the trillions of websites out there do, of course, use lots of energy.

A large data centre will probably use up about the same amount of energy as literally tens of thousands of individual houses, a significant amount it can be seen.

Part of the problem is the cooling that is needed to stop the systems overheating and frazzling (technical term).

To do this then air conditioning is used that runs off electricity, so one idea is to change that by potentially having data centres out at sea on special vessels. The idea is that then all the water around them in the sea could be used to cool them instead, saving electrically, potentially using wave power to boot.
