Green Revolution Cooling has been awarded a Phase-II National Science Foundation Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to support the continued development of its high-performance fluid-submersion cooling system for data centers.
The grant comes two years after the Phase I grant from NSF and the funds will be used to streamline large-scale manufacturing of the CarnotJet™ system. In addition, the funds will be used for R&D to further optimize system performance and efficiency.
This is very exciting news for GRC. The continued support from NSF signifies the foothold that GRC has gained in the data center cooling market.

Green Revolution Cooling Awarded NSF Phase II SBIR Grant
AUSTIN, TX, January 16, 2012 – Green Revolution Cooling (GRC) today announced that it has received a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The second-stage grant follows the Phase I grant received by GRC in November 2009.
Christiaan Best, CEO and Technical Founder of GRC, said: “We’re happy to be working with NSF again to continue the development of what we believe is the most powerful and efficient cooling solution available for the data center today. This funding will support advanced development of the next generation of efficient fluid-submersion cooling systems.”
Since the Phase I grant in 2009, GRC has been rapidly growing its customer base. Now approaching one megawatt of installed capacity worldwide, including installations at four of the Top-50 supercomputing sites worldwide, GRC continues to gain traction in the industry.
The Phase II grant signifies continued support for GRC’s next generation of fluid-submersion cooling systems. The majority of funding will support research and development to further increase efficiency and usability while streamlining the manufacturing process.
