Looking for waste heat on the grid
Aligned Energy is a new player when it comes to data center construction, backed by venture capital. It needs to find intensive, waste heat producers -- smelters, steel plants, pulp and paper mills, and electricity generation stations -- at which to deploy its Heat Power electricity generators. Perhaps they could also be used at stockyards, where there's a surplus of methane as cattle manure gets decomposed. Electricity is easier to capture and transport than methane and there's a ready market for it.
