Abstract

This invention provides a set of systems and a method that allows energy that would otherwise be wasted to be harnessed and used to power a green data center. Energy from heat output of computers and other IT equipment, sound energy, kinetic energy can all be gathered and used to 'trickle charge' a backup power supply system or otherwise converted to electrical energy to help power the data center
