Delivering Energy & Exergy Efficiency in the Converged 5G RAN/Edge Compute Network
Project Innovation + Advantages:
Nokia will reuse the heat energy AI workloads produce while delivering digital services to supply high quality thermal energy that can be used directly for building heating, cooling, and/or thermal energy storage. The proposed technology will pursue a low-cost, passive, ultra-reliable, high-performance, two-phase cooling philosophy from chip to room scale. The team will rearchitect the computing infrastructure for secondary use as a valuable heat source in heat reuse applications with minimal supporting infrastructure. Available work efficiency will be maximized via heat reuse enabled by the increased flow of high-quality thermal power out of a densified server environment with corresponding energy reuse effectiveness.
Nokia will develop a highly efficient, resource-conserving, thermal energy architecture that will simultaneously improve AI server cooling energy efficiency and deliver high quality thermal energy that can be used directly for heating and cooling buildings.
