    1. Clean Energy Investment in the United States

      Clean Energy Investment in the United States

      The United States has attracted capital in clean energy markets for more than a decade. Renewable energy, or RE, investment in U.S. wind, solar, hydro, and geothermal power has increased nearly 250 percent since 2004, reaching 36.7 billion in 2013. These numbers only represent part of clean energy’s full investment potential as new regulations on carbon emissions and advances in technology will significantly increase demand for low-carbon fuels.

    2. Newark Data Center report shows it to be "clean but not green"

      Newark Data Center report shows it to be "clean but not green"

      Nearly 200 people packed a Newark City Council meeting Monday night to hear if the proposed Newark Data Center is environmentally sound. Council members heard the details of a third party report on the proposed Data Center. The Data Center (TDC) would be constructed on the University of Delaware's Science Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) campus. The center would make its own power by constructing a 279-megawatt combined heat and power plant on site. Supporters of the plant tout the jobs it would create in Delaware.

      Distributed power generation – Is it right for your datacentre energy strategy?

      As datacentre complexity and size grows, enterprises are looking for greener, more energy efficient ways to power these energy-guzzling facilities. One option is using distributed generation strategy, but will this cost and energy-efficient strategy work for datacentres of all sizes and types?

    4. The Apple of the Planet's Eye

      The Apple of the Planet's Eye

      If, perchance, you have the opportunity to read the long list of health benefits from eating an apple a day, then for sure you’ll have an apple on your table every morning. It is a remarkable fruit that helps with almost every organ, crack, and crevice throughout the human body by curbing cancer, parkinsonism, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, gallstones, hemorrhoids, liver problems, cataracts, and it even helps whiten teeth (sounds like the polar opposite of fast-talk warnings on TV ads for medicine). Why eat anything else?

      The Green Data Center in the Real World

      In an ideal world, all energy would be free, data resources would be unlimited, and every day would be Christmas, Easter and your birthday rolled into one. But as my grandma always told me, “this ain’t a perfect world, kid.” As you can probably guess, grandma wasn’t one of those sweet, little old ladies who sat in rocking chairs all day knitting sweaters.

      Can an eco-friendly colo data center really save you some green?

      Whether it's to save money or save the planet, many companies want greener IT operations. When you outsource equipment and operations to a colocation provider, the electricity bill lands in someone else's inbox. How do you know the colo data center is truly "green?"

      Cool It: Is the Internet Too Hot for Data Centers to Handle?

      The Internet may not consume nearly as much environmentally unfriendly fossil fuel as airplanes or automobiles, but the growth of cloud-based services offered by Apple, Netflix and others is forcing data centers to provide greater speed and more storage capacity. All of this size and speed comes at a price. Data centers generate a lot of heat that has to be whisked away by power-hungry air and liquid-cooling systems to keep the Internet’s engines from burning themselves out.

    10. Will Data Centres Take Part In Demand Reduction?

      Will Data Centres Take Part In Demand Reduction?

      Energy policy in the UK is developing very slowly, but there are signs of new things happening. Data centres may have to act cleverly to benefit from the next stages, however. After the floods and bad weather, there were calls for the government to acknowledge the role of manmade climate change, and beef up its policies in the area. Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron said he “very much suspects” that climate change is involved in the weather patterns.

      Tim Cook advises climate change deniers to get out of Apple stock

      In his job as Apple CEO, Tim Cook is mostly known for having a demeanor that's in some ways antithetical to that of Steve Jobs. Instead of bombast and bold claims, Cook's soothing Southern-tinged speech and steely temperament have marked him as a man whose head could be nothing but level. That is, unless you're a shareholder who thinks climate change is bogus.

      Energy Efficiency of Cloud Computing

      Most agree that cloud computing is inherently more efficient that on premise computing in each of several dimensions. Last November, I went after two of the easiest to argue gains: utilization and the ability to sell excess capacity (Datacenter Renewable Power Done Right): Cloud computing is a fundamentally more efficiently way to operate compute infrastructure.

      CommScope says forget generators, buy hydrogen fuel cells instead

      CommScope announced Monday it will resell a phone-booth-size outdoor fuel cell system that uses hydrogen as fuel as a backup power solution for buildings such as data centers and telecommunications facilities. Pitched as an environmentally friendly and quiet replacement for the commonly used diesel generators, the system can sustain supply power for up to 16 hours.

      What Data Center Company will be first to experiment with Hydrogen Solar Cell? Apple, Google, Facebook

      For environmental thought leadership in the data center industry the short list is Apple, Google, and Facebook.  Others also have environmental efforts, but these three are consistently in the news sharing their efforts, and the media loves writing about them.

      Data centers can be cooled down in environmentally friendly, energy efficient ways

      Data centers housing thousands of computers have enabled proliferation of new cloud-based services. One problem is their aggregate electricity consumption. Servers in data centers use electricity and generate heat, which endanger reliability of the services provided unless cooling is arranged. Mikko Pervilä defends his dissertation on retrofit cooling techniques for data centers in December.
