What is Project Exergy?

In places like data centers enormous sums of money and energy is spent to air condition out the waste heat generated by computation. What if we started thinking about heat as a benefit of computation instead of a cost? We built a prototype for proof-of-concept.

The Project Exergy Solution

What if heat was the primary benefit of computation?
Capture and store heat from computation and use energy more efficiently.
We built a prototype for proof-of-concept.

Data Centers + Wasted Heat + Computation

Combined Heat + Computation
