How do we Repurpose Existing Renewable Energy Infrastructure to Support IoT Functions?

Wind turbines have long been used to help power data centers - albeit, not so directly as with WestfalenWIND's WindCORES project. There is plenty of space inside many wind turbine towers for IT and infrastructure equipment. Can we use this to enable the low-emissions distributed data centers of the future? This case study maps the progress made by the project so far and analyses the next steps for wider adoption.
