Across the industry, markets around the world are feeling the impact from the ongoing war and resulting constraints in the supply of fossil fuels. Chris Pennington of Iron Mountain Data Centers provides insights on the market dynamics of renewable energy and energy costs.
As data center sustainability becomes an even greater priority, navigating the path to green must be done sensibly. Learn more about the current state of five sustainable energy sources and how each might be a viable solution for data center operators.
As cloud computing grows faster than local utility grids, strategic data center markets are facing power constraints that pose a major challenge to the long-term growth of the Internet. Here’s a closer look at how the Dublin market is managing the challenges of growth.
Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and green business energy tariffs are key tools in a data center sustainability strategy. Here’s a closer look at how they work.
While exceeding compliance may be possible, it can cost more to do so. Allan Schurr of Enchanted Rock explains how clean microgrids can help data centers exceed minimum compliance and save money.
Battery storage solutions are finally rounding the corner and becoming viable alternatives to diesel generators for data center backup power. Here’s a closer look at storage, as well as the role of biomass and hydropower, via Kohler Power.
The U.S. Energy Information Association (EIA) lists five major sources of renewable energy. We look at the state of three types of renewables for data centers – solar, wind, and geothermal power.
In the latest step in its expansion beyond colocation, Evoque has formed a joint venture with Archer Datacenters to create a 100-megawatt data center campus in Gallatin, Tennessee.
The theme for today’s Earth Day 2022 is “Invest in Our Planet.” DCF looks at the investments made by cloud platforms in how they build, operate and power for the data centers – along with innovations from the past year that may help mitigate climate change.
How do we power the Fourth Industrial Revolution to ensure a more sustainable future? And, how do we ensure that we begin to reduce greenhouse gas emissions measurably? Bill Kleyman of Switch discusses why sustainable data centers are key to the success of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
