The impact of renewables and energy rates on data center growth
The latest data from the US Energy Information Administration reveals data centers power usage dramatically increased from 2017 to 2018. This growth is expected to continue year on year through to 2050.
This usage gives to rise to innovation in energy strategy. The energy landscape paradigm has shifted, with coal consumption declining and the pioneering world of renewable energy purchases driving a reduction in overall energy rates.
Chaired by DCD Smart Energy Advisor, Susanna Kass, our expert panel of energy executives share key data center energy trends that will impact the design of build of next-generation data centers.
The webinar explores:
- The role of smart energy; the impact to the energy market and rates
- Driving new methods and technologies to integrate distributed energy into the electric grid
- The emergence of next generation global data centers powered by renewables (without PPA)
- The march of states by states, regions by regions of clean energy regulation
