Complex CERNwhich extends to the border The French-Swiss consumes approximately 200 megawatts of power during rush hour – a third of what the city consumes Geneva – He says The Wall Street Journal. Regarding the energy crisis, especially the suspension of the recent flow Gas Nord Stream 1, CERN plans to reduce energy consumption in case of increased demand.
CERN will save electricity
We care about stability Networks. We are doing everything we can to prevent blackouts in our area,” said Serge Claudette, chair of the CERN Energy Management Committee, citing the WSJ.
The accelerators at CERN now operate 24 hours a day. But CERN is preparing to gradually reduce its operations. First, smaller accelerators must be separated, which will save up to 25 percent in total. electricity.
“It’s voluntary work when you don’t want to spoil your game,” says the chair of CERN’s Energy Management Committee, quoted by the Wall Street Journal.
Will the Large Hadron Collider be stopped?
However, the organization wants to avoid disconnection Large Hadron Colliderw, which has been accelerating work since July to crush particles at the highest energy ever achieved. Separating him will save another 25 percent. energy.
However, the decision will significantly delay the results experiments. The device requires a superconducting magnet to be cooled and maintained at -271°C, allowing the particle beam to bend. Unfortunately, this requires a huge amount of energy.

Large Hadron Collider
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest particle accelerator. Located near Geneva, St. Switzerland The giant has the shape of a wheel, the rim of which is 27 km long. The device was created to discover the secrets of the quantum world. So far, the greatest achievement of scientists working with the Large Hadron Collider has been to confirm the existence of the so-called Higgs boson.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research announces its cooperation
CERN officials are just finalizing a specific plan to halt the trials, which they will present to the government officials funding the center at the end of the month.
– If we receive income In order for science to stop science voluntarily to save energy, we need to make sure we get the support of the right countries.
