HP says that cows could power server farms

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2010

The folks over at HP have a special place in their hearts for cow manure. And I’m not talking about their press releases. Thank you, I’ll be here all week. Seriously, HP is into dairy cows now in a big way. They think that they could turn manure into fuel and use it effectively.

With the right equipment, methane can be extracted from the manure and since the average cow makes enough waste per day to power a 100-watt light bulb, if they had 10,000 cows…That’s enough fuel to generate a one-megawatt data center.
