OpenUK Patchwork Kilt Project

The project was instigated to honour COP26 being held in the UK, by OpenUK leading a consortium of organisations, and combines many existing open technologies and concepts in a unique way to create “Patchwork Kilt”, OpenUK’s blueprint for the Open Technology based carbon negative data centre of the future. The concept reuses derelict pandemic buildings, in particular retail and office space to create edge based data centres brining the data centre closer to the user and using open technologies – software, hardware and data, to reduce data centres’ carbon footprint, across 6 buckets of technology and considering scope 1-3 emissions. The data centre outputs should be put back into the local community to reduce heating bills for residents in need or to support community projects by heating swimming pools or community gardens like Dundee’s Eden Project. The story is shared in this video https://youtu.be/d7Mqyq73WGk and the final project was donated to the Eclipse Foundation to host contributions in the future and build a community, https://digitalinfranetwork.com/news/openuk-donates-their-data-center-energy-efficiency-blueprint-named-patchwork-kilt-to-the-eclipse-foundation
