Firms will work together on initiatives to educate Scottish gaming community on carbon impacts of esports
Esports Scotland, the country’s preeminent grassroots to professional event organiser, esports in education leader, and outstanding white label solutions provider is to work closely with Deep Green, a pioneer of climate and society friendly compute, on a range of initiatives to help the Scottish gaming community reduce the carbon impact of their activities.
In an era marked by rapid growth in the esports and gaming industry, it is imperative to address the significant energy consumption and environmental footprint associated with these sectors. Esports Scotland and Deep Green will develop a range of educational resources for the industry, sponsor esports events and make carbon positive compute available to gamers, event organisers and games developers.
Using the latest immersion cooling technology Deep Green extract heat from their on-site edge data centres to provide free hot water for swimming pools and social housing. The secure, serverless cloud-based compute Deep Green provide is faster, smarter and more affordable than conventional data centres. In reusing the heat generated, it uses up to 60% less energy, while also providing a compelling social good.
James Hood, CEO of Esports Scotland said:
"It has been an exhilarating six months for us at Esports Scotland, as we have solidified our direction and made sustainable practices a central part of our mission. With the work we will do with Deep Green, we can combine the immense influence of the esports community with their cutting-edge technology to drive positive change and contribute to a greener future."
Mark Bjornsgaard for Deep Green Energy said:
“Given the unprecedented growth in high performance and data-intensive computing across all sectors, it is imperative that we continue to find ways to be ever more energy-efficient and sustainable. Re-purposing, what would be, waste heat is central to this.
The work we will do with Esports Scotland validates the demand for energy-efficient compute that also provides a societal good – supporting local businesses in reducing their reliance on carbon-intensive fossil fuelled boilers.”
