Facebook hooks up Odense data centre to local district heating system

A Facebook hyperscale data centre in Odense has begun heating local homes using heat recovered from its servers.

In a blog post, Lauren Edelman, Facebook’s energy program manager, said the social media giant plans to donate 100,000 MWh of energy to the community using low-temperature heat generated by the facility’s systems.

While other projects in Denmark use recaptured heat from smaller structures such as supermarkets for extremely localised heat recapturing, Facebook’s 50,000 square-metre will scale production to up to 25MW of heat.
