Project Exergy aims to tap cloud computing's excess heat

Ben Welter - Tuesday, February 03, 2015
Lawrence OrsiniCloud-based data centers generate a lot of excess heat. Can it be harnessed to heat homes? New York inventor Lawrence Orsini thinks so. He has proposed installing distributed supercomputers in homes and offices to reduce heating bills and energy consumption. Orsini's Project Exergy seeks to raise $100,000 on Kickstarter. 

A prototype of the heat storage system uses a water tank. A future version will use phase change material to store the heat.
