Data center energy usage has been increasing dramatically, and the trend isn’t stopping. Delivering lower emissions and the option of longer run times, fast-start natural gas generators and other data center solutions can provide electricity when data center operators need it.
Along with the surge in data center electricity demand has come a push for more renewable energy. As intermittent renewable electricity generation increases, fast-start resources can balance and accommodate the instability of the electric grid. In addition, fast-start, natural gas generators give data center operators the opportunity to monetize assets while providing benefi ts to the electric grid.
Natural gas generators can offer offer fast-start capability with full load, along with the additional benefits that come with the ability to run on a variety of operating modes.
This new report from INNIO highlights how growing data center electricity demand has paved the way for a new generation of data center solutions and data center power strategies.
