A Sustainable Future for Data Centres

In 2020, electricity consumption by global data centres was 200-250 TWh. That equals around 1% of global electricity consumption. It’s no wonder that data centre operators are looking to create more sustainable data centres.

But how?

There are 5 approaches currently being trialled or tested:

1. Optimising Airflow- We see every day the positive impact that optimising airflow in data centres can have on energy consumption

2. Liquid Cooling- Air cooling may not always be enough to keep data centres of the future cool

3. Goodbye diesel generators- Testing is underway to replace diesel generators and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units with solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC)

4. Hello renewables- By switching to green energy suppliers, data centres are leveraging wind, solar and hydroelectric power to reduce their carbon footprints

5. Smart Power Management- Smart power management aids the right amount of energy to be delivered to the right place at the right time, always.
