  • 18.01.2016

In collaboration with L'Atelier BNP Paribas, the Group has created "Change It", a video magazine that presents innovation in all its forms. It aims to identify the most innovative start-ups and offers insights into their operations around the world.

The French start-up Qarnot Computing is transforming the heat produced by computer servers into home radiators. A part of Qarnot servers are delocated in smart radiators for private houses or industrial buidings, dividing by 4 their carbon footprint!

Through this process, energy consumption can actually be reduced: first, no need to constantly cool their data centers, and secondly, the valuation of this heat enables great heating economies.
