The ultimate confort
Have you ever noticed that your personal computer was producing heat while processing tasks? At Qarnot, we decided to take advantage of this waste heat to deliver it directly to buildings. Qarnot designed the Q.rad, the first computing heater embedding microprocessors as a heat source and connected to the Internet.
Free & green heating
The Q.rad produces heat by computation, the electricity consumption is measured by an embedded counter and related expenses are automatically refunded to the host.
The heat is a by-product of workload processing. Avoiding the use of cooling systems makes the Q.rad a 100% sustainable heating solution.
An infrastructure for green computing
The heat generated by all the data centers in the world could already heat half of Europe’s households and doubles every 5 years. The digitalization of our economies call for drastically more energy efficient alternative models to data centers. Instead of concentrating servers in data centers, Qarnot distributes them within the city in the form of heaters, computing remotely for companies.
