Edged Energy, an Endeavour subsidiary focused on carbon-neutral data centre infrastructure, has announced the inauguration of its first four data centres in the United States.

These facilities are tailored for high-density AI workloads, featuring advanced waterless cooling and ultra-efficient energy systems, contributing more than 300MW of critical capacity and achieving an average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15.

“The rise of AI and machine learning is requiring more power, and often more water, to cool outdated servers. While traditional data centres struggle to adapt, Edged Energy facilities are ready for the advanced computing of today and tomorrow without consuming any water for cooling,” said Bryant Farland, Chief Executive Officer for Edged Energy.

Innovative Cooling and Energy Efficiency

The first phase includes a 168MW campus in Atlanta, along with facilities in Chicago (96MW), Phoenix (36MW), and Kansas City (24MW). These facilities will open later this year.

These centres are designed to support the demanding requirements of Generative AI and advanced computing, employing the ThermalWorks waterless cooling system to support up to 70kW per rack with air cooling and 200kW per rack with liquid cooling integration.

“Sustainability is at the core of our platform. It is why our data centres are uniquely optimised for energy efficiency and water conservation. We are excited to be partnering with local communities to bring future-proof solutions to a growing digital economy,” said Farland.

This approach is expected to save over 1.2 billion gallons of water annually, offering a significant environmental benefit amid growing concerns over water scarcity.

Several more U.S. sites by Edged Energy are expected to break ground in major urban markets in the coming months.
