The landmark series on data center sustainability

Data centers and the hydrogen economy; Can hydrogen fuel cells replace diesel generators?

With diesel generators recognized as having long-term environmental implications, Microsoft plans to eliminate its reliance on diesel fuel by the year 2030 as part of its goal to be carbon negative.

Winner of the Energy Smart Award at the 2020 DCD>Awards, Microsoft, will share their first of its kind project using hydrogen-powered generators to support data center compute loads. This session will detail how they demonstrated that fuel cells originally designed for use in automobiles, could perform the technical requirements of the data center generator task, how they plan to scale, and how hydrogen generators designed in this way could replace diesels directly. Discover the possibilities that increasing the availability of green hydrogen and fuel cell technology can open up for the future of the industry and the world energy markets.
