UK start-up Deep Green heats public swimming pool with data centre heat

In Devon, UK the start-up called Deep Green is using the heat generated by a washing-machine-sized data centre to heat the local public swimming pool. The data centre is surrounded by oil to capture the heat, which is then used to warm the water in the pool.

The system saves Exmouth Leisure Centre thousands of pounds in energy costs and the data centre is provided to the council-run centre for free. Deep Green charges clients to use its computing power for artificial intelligence and machine learning and also refunds the leisure centre's electricity costs for running the "digital boiler". Seven other pools in England have signed up for the scheme. The concept was developed over five years and is relatively straightforward. The heat generated by data centres is a huge problem as a lot of the money that it costs to run a data centre is taken up in getting rid of the heat.
Quite a smart way to re-use heating for the public good right?
