Tesla Batteries Store Renewable Solar Energy

26 November 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

Tesla
After a successful trial of Tesla's rechargeable lithium-ion battery system over the past seven months to store excess Solar Power during the day to use overnight, we have now doubled the number of Tesla's lithium-ion batteries that we have.

The additional Tesla batteries will allow Web Wiz to be self-sufficient for electrical power needs for a large part of the year using only the renewable energy produced by our on-site Solar power generation. 

Vast Data Centres consume enormous amounts of power that add to the  IT sector global CO2 emissions which is on par with the airline industry* At Web Wiz, we believe in providing a sustainable alternative for customers to host their websites.

*Trends in data centre energy consumption under the European Code of Conduct for data centre energy efficiency - 2017 Report from the European Commission.

Web Wiz Data Centre Solar Generation 2018-2019

11 September 2019, in Eco Data Centre

Web Wiz Data Centre Solar Panel Array
It has been a year since our Solar Panel Array went live and in this first year, it has generated a staggering 16,000,000 Watts of Renewable Energy.

This is the same amount of energy as used by the Data Hall to power all our IT equipment.

The Data Centres that power the worlds Internet use an estimated 416.2 TWh of energy to power them. That is 1% of the world's electricity and is growing rapidly.

With the Internet consuming such large amounts of energy we believe here at Web Wiz in the importance of providing sustainable Web and Server Hosting to our customers.

Eco Data Centre Achieves 100% Uptime Since Opening

20 May 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

100% Network UptimeIt has been 1 year since we opened our Eco Data Centre on the 17th of May 2018. In this year our Eco Data Centre has accomplished 100% Uptime with no outages to our Network.

To reach 100% Uptime, we have built a Multihomed Network with Diverse BGP Routing using multiple fibre connections from BT OpenReach and Virgin Media entering our facility at opposite ends of the building.

100% Uptime is an incredible achievement for a new Data Centre as there are usually teething issues in the first year, and we are all very proud of this achievement.

Even after dark, our Hosting is still powered by the Sun

09 May 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

TeslaThanks to our new Tesla rechargeable lithium-ion battery system we are now able to store the excess energy generated by our on-site Solar Panel Array to use overnight, allowing our Eco Data Centre to be powered by the Sun even after the Sun has gone down!

Our Eco Data Centre and Office are powered by our on-site Solar Panel Array of 50 high-efficiency PV Solar Panels which can produce up to eight times more renewable electricity energy than we currently require. 

Our new Tesla rechargeable lithium-ion battery system is able to store this excess energy which is then used to power our Eco Data Centre during the night.

Data Centre Free Air Cooling and Heat Recovery

22 February 2019, in Web Wiz News, Eco Data Centre

Direct Air (DA), Free Air CoolingIn May 2018 when we opened our new purpose-built Eco Data Centre, one of the prime objectives was to build an Ecological Energy Efficient Data Centre.

Since the opening of our Eco Data Centre, we have been working to improve the efficiency, this includes developing a Direct Air (DA), Free Air Cooling and Heat Recovery System.

The system uses the mild climate we have here in the UK to cool our Eco Data Centre using digitally controlled EC Ducting Fans with the waste warm air circulated within our facility. This keeps our Servers cool and our Office at a snug 20C even on the coldest days.  

We have been operating our Free Air Cooling and Heat Recovery system since the start of this winter and during that time have not needed any additional heating in our Office, even during the recent snowy period.

The new system has reduced our facilities Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating to just 1.16 making it one of the most efficient Data Centres in the world.
