Tidal Power Data Centre for Scotland

One I missed from a couple of weeks ago is the news that Atlantis Resources Corporation, a Singapore-based company that develops technology to get renewable energy from tidal power, has formed a strategic alliance with Internet Villages International (IVI), a data centre builder based in Scotland.

The two companies are working with economic development agencies and other partners to identify sustainable regeneration opportunities in the areas around Atlantis’ data centre at Pentland Firth in Caithness and IVI’s data centre in Dumfries and Galloway.

The available renewable power in Scotland, from both wind and tide, seems to be making it a centre of attention for new, renewable energy-based data centres. In December I reported on the plans to build the world's largest data centre in Lockerbie, which will not only use renewable energy but also has plans to re-use the output heat in new homes and commercial developments.

Don't forget - a pdf of all the 2008 blogs is available with news, comment and links to a range of sources. Click
