Sorry to keep kicking a dead horse guys, but the issue of increasing 
thermal efficiency in large clusters and data centers has been keeping 
me awake at nights. Has anyone tried to use a stirling engine or other 
for instance:

that can take as input pure heat, not just potential in the form of btus, in 
order to recover some of the heat energy that would simply be wasted at a 
large facility. Could this be economically viable?
