Sustainable energy solutions for datacenters
Climate change and the growth speed of datacenter business are creating a need to improve the sustainability of datacenters. Customers also see sustainability as a competitive advantage for colocation providers. Energy solutions for dc’s are location specific. In order to utilize the heat, there must be a customer to utilize the heat and pay for it. For on-site energy production suitable conditions are required. There are standard solutions to significantly improve datacenters environmental performance such as excess heat utilization, on-site power production and green electricity supply.
