THE EDGE ON CONNECTIVITY, COST AND CARBON.

We’re now deploying hundreds of award winning decarbonised T3 micro data centres at the far-edge of the network with significant cost savings and PUEs of 1.001.

Deep Green is ready with faster, cheaper, and greener capacity available across 1500 UK sites.

We unlock the potential of a wide range of use cases – edge cloud, HPC and blockchains – with colocation and baremetal solutions and /kw rates far below conventions.

Edge cloud

Pick from 1500 sites in the UK in prime locations to host low-latency and mission-critical applications or build out your own CDN on our infrastructure.

Edge Co-location

We provide highly cost effective colocation services in our Edge sites. We can also convert on-prem infrastructure to data furances to improve your ESG credentials.

Edge – HPC

Need HPC clusters for machine learning or AI applications? Our larger 5-10MW sites can be configured to cope with the most demanding of applications.

Start migrating to Deep Green today.

Cost effective

With zero cooling costs and stranded power Deep Green is 50% cheaper than conventional colo & baremetal.

Reduced latency

Our network is perfect when every millisecond counts in an edge estate.

Decarbonised

No greenwashing – we take downstream gas boilers out of commission.

Build resilience

Our T3 kit uses no water and keeps cool in heatwaves better than conventional data centres.

Safe and secure

Our modular datacentres are secure and designed to work in the harshest Edge environments.

Infinitely expandable

Our estate can scale beyond any Hyperscale offering to get ahead of data centre curtailments.

ESG reporting

Loose the headache of ESG reporting with our real-time carbon tracking and reporting tools.

How much do you charge for your compute?2024-01-15T15:46:36+00:00

The applications are incredibly diverse so there is rarely a specific price. However, in general we are more affordable than comparable providers because our approach removes:

  • Expensive and energy intensive cooling costs
  • Land, planning, and construction costs
How do you eliminate the emissions associated with compute?2024-01-15T15:45:11+00:00

It is our intention to be lifetime carbon zero. We will always purchase fully renewable energy, REGRO Backed, or direct from renewable energy generators. For the small amount of carbon that we emit we will address by purchasing durable carbon removal credits.

Why is demand for compute rising? Why is this bad?2024-01-15T15:55:50+00:00

Demand for compute is increasing significantly, for so many use cases. Think content delivery to ethical production to AI. According to McKinsey, in the US alone, it will increase 10% year on year until 2030.

Yet the industry faces a number of challenges to meet it:

  • Data centres are energy intensive – between 20 and 60% of the energy required is for cooling – it is estimated that the world’s data centres collectively consume more energy than Germany as an entire country
  • Electricity grid connections are difficult to secure 10, as is the land required to build the facilities on.
  • Their energy usage, both to power the computers and to keep them cool, results in significant carbon emissions, c. 3% of all GHG emissions.

Our edge compute and heat reuse model reframes the economics and environmental challenges facing the data centre industry.

Specifically:

  • With a PUE of 1.01 it is amongst the most energy efficient data centres in the world
  • We give the heat clients’ compute generates to their local communities for free cutting their reliance on fossil-fuel boilers, saving them money and reducing their carbon emissions
How much carbon is saved compared to a traditional data centre?2024-01-15T11:12:41+00:00

We know that we have helped Exmouth reduce their carbon emissions in 2023 by almost 26 tonnes. At this stage we have not yet done the precise calculations* as to how we compare with other data centres, but with a PuE of 1.01 we know we are amongst the best in the world.

*and we will, shortly.

How does a Deep Green data centre reduce a hosts reliance on a gas boiler?2024-01-15T11:06:33+00:00

The host’s gas boiler will only ‘top up’ the temperature of the water when it hasn’t reached the desired temperature solely using heat captured from Deep Green’s unit. There will be times the gas boiler is off completely.

Which sites will Deep Green install in? Is it only pools?2024-01-15T10:59:36+00:00

We can deploy at a range of sites including public swimming pools and district heating networks. Pools were a good first use-case because they had a need for the free heat, space to host the technology and have a constant heat demand. We estimate that 30% of industrial and commercial heat could be supplied by Deep Green technology.

What is the cost of installing and running a Deep Green site? What does it cost the host?2024-01-15T10:44:50+00:00

There is no cost to the host to install a Deep Green unit. We fund the installation, maintenance and operating costs of each site, and the host receives the heat for free.

How quickly can a data centre be deployed?2024-01-15T10:36:18+00:00

We can deploy a data centre very quickly, within a matter of weeks. The trigger is demand from end users for the compute

How do Deep Green data centres work?2024-01-15T10:37:02+00:00

Deep Green’s data centres are specially adapted to re-purpose (rather than waste) the heat generated from the operation of their computers.

  • The computers are submerged in a tank that looks like a deep chest freezer.
  • The liquid in the tank (dielectric fluid) is circulated by pumps around the computers and is warmed up by their waste heat.
  • This heat is then transferred to the host’s existing hot water system via a heat exchange, bringing the cold water to temperature.
How many sites will Deep Green deploy in? Can you deploy in all pools in the UK?2024-01-15T10:39:41+00:00

Yes, with just 1% of the UK’s data centre demand, we could heat all 1500+ public pools in the UK. For free.

Why are Octopus Energy Generation managed funds investing in Deep Green?2024-01-16T10:39:27+00:00
  • Octopus Energy Generation managed funds are investing in Deep Green to accelerate the rolling out of our proven technology at scale; it’s a compelling proposition for both hosts and customers.
  • Demand for compute is increasing significantly, yet the industry is not set-up to meet it. Currently, data centres are energy intensive, in part to keep the computers cool. Wasting this heat is inefficient and results in significant carbon emissions.
  • Deep Green is a data centre pioneer that is deploying its immersion cooling technology in a way that completely reframes the economics, environmental challenges and capacity issues facing the data centre industry.
  • In reusing the heat (rather than deploying air conditioning or “opening the windows”) and supplying it to local communities for free, Deep Green creates a strong social good.
Why is your compute so cost effective?2024-01-15T10:39:25+00:00

It’s cost effective because we only draw power for compute, not for cooling; relatively simple thermodynamics save the “second electron” so we pass on energy savings to end customers.
