Given goals for a cleaner U.S. power supply, utilities and policymakers may be seeking alternatives to a strategy of deploying diesel generators for backup power/resilience. Enchanted Rock compares microgrid solutions to see which alternative to diesel backup power can provide resilience while reducing emissions.
The data center industry is on the lookout for ways to better meet society’s demand for “constant connectivity, content delivery, and a myriad of business and personal necessities.” That’s according to a new special report from Data Center Frontier in partnership with Microgrid Knowledge and distributer energy leader Enchanted Rock that explores the growing symbiotic relationship between microgrids and data centers.
There’s more to microgrids than you might think. If you’ve never looked at microgrids as a real option for your data center, enterprise, or specific use-case, it might be an excellent moment to explore these solutions.
