    1. Internal Carbon Fees Fund Data Center Energy Innovation at Microsoft

      Internal Carbon Fees Fund Data Center Energy Innovation at Microsoft

      When it committed to 100 percent carbon-neutral operations in 2012, Microsoft started the unusual practice of charging each of its internal departments fees for the amount of greenhouse-gas emissions they are responsible for. Today, three years later, the company claims that the strategy works.

    4. How Data Center Operators Can Avoid Energy Price Hikes This Winter

      How Data Center Operators Can Avoid Energy Price Hikes This Winter

      Energy consumption is one of the largest operating expenses for a data center, contributing to nearly 50 percent of total operating expenses. Due to last winter’s “polar vortex” that caused a deep freeze in much of the U.S., many large energy consumers in unregulated markets saw their energy prices quadruple. In fact, we have seen a tremendous amount of volatility in energy prices over the last decade.

    10. Capturing Carbon as a Byproduct of Running a Fuel Cell

      Capturing Carbon as a Byproduct of Running a Fuel Cell

      The more that engineers look, the more they find unexpected ways to capture carbon dioxide, a gas that scientists say threatens global climate stability. Until now, most efforts to capture carbon have been expensive, in dollars and in energy. A coal-fired power plant that grabbed carbon before it escaped into the atmosphere would lose an enormous portion of its energy output in the process.

      Ministry of Defence Turns To G-Cloud For Data Centre Consolidation Project

      The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has sourced a new power-efficient data centre through the government’s G-Cloud procurement framework, in a move intended to generate savings over the next 10 years. While spend data has not yet been released, Ark Data Centres, the supplier chosen for the project, said the overall cost of running the new facility would be significantly lower than the old site, in part because of “significant” energy savings.
