Inspired by: Energy conservation and climate change. My mission is to apply the laws of elementary physics to cool electronics. This is not being done now. Data Centers currently consume 2% of total electric generation, and the need for power is growing rapidly. More than half of that energy is wasted. The technology that LCS developed has the potential to eliminate that waste.

This might have an enormous impact on climate change. The NREL study stated that widespread adoption of our technology in 2016 to cool US Data Centers could have saved 26 terawatt-hours of electrical energy, which is equivalent to 13 million tons of CO2.
