The new series on energy system integration for data centers
Panel: Why is it so difficult to discount diesel from your reliability equation?
The shift towards powering facilities with evermore clean and diversified sources of fuel is rapidly becoming a necessity as corporations shift to become carbon-negative by 2030. With the vast array of generators powered by diesel, this element of power infrastructure has come into sharp focus as operators look to forge ahead with plans for gradual replacement and long-term elimination.
With this in mind, we ask the panel whether electrical hardware as we know it will cease to exist, what the alternatives are and what the consequences of generator elimination may be as data centers seek to reduce their overall impact to the global environment.
