Milford, N.H., December 1, 2009 — AdaptivCool and Bluestone Energy Services partnered to provide data center energy efficiency solutions in National Grid and NSTAR territories.
The collaboration will strengthen AdaptivCool and Bluestone’s ability to help clients implement data center efficiency best practices.
The partnership, building on a similar agreement made in March 2009, will leverage AdaptivCool’s expertise in adaptive-cooling technologies such as Room Scale Intelligent Cooling and Bluestone’s expertise in designing solutions that earn financial incentives from local utilities.
AdaptivCool and Bluestone recently collaborated on a data center efficiency project for a biotechnology company in Cambridge, Mass. The project qualified for a significant incentive from NSTAR, saves 40 percent of the annual data center cooling energy and resulted in a simple payback of less than 2 years.
AdaptivCool is the data center division of Milford, NH-based Degree Controls, Inc. AdaptivCool’s flagship technology is AdaptivCool Room Scale Intelligent Cooling.
RISC temperature sensors send information to a Cooling Resource Manager that calculates minute-by-minute cooling demand and controls data center airflow dynamically via floor- and ceiling-mounted air movers, reducing electrical consumption for data center cooling by up to thirty percent. AdaptivCool also offers HotSpotr, a packaged product that eliminates data center hotspots.
Norwell, Mass-based Bluestone Energy Services provides engineering, project development and demand-side management services for utility, industrial and commercial clients.
Bluestone has worked with a wide array of companies including Boston Properties, Cabot Corp.n and the Stop and Shop Supermarket Co.
