      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.

      TechWatch: Why your data center needs a fuel cell generator

      We live in an energy-hungry world, and IT is an energy-voracious industry. Large generating plants and transmission lines aren't built at a rate that matches energy demand. A growing number of data center operations are adopting fuel cells to generate on-site power without reliance on the grid. This distributed generation adds new power supply and, unlike conventional generators, puts quiet, clean fuel cell generators on-site that consume relatively inexpensive fuel.

      How to Cut Cloud Computing’s Carbon Emissions

      A group of algorithms developed by computer scientists at Trinity College Dublin and IBM Research Dublin can help reduce the carbon cost of cloud computing, IEEE Spectrum reports. Using the new algorithms, collectively called Stratus, the scientists were able to model a worldwide network of connected data centers and predict how to keep carbon emissions […]

      Exploring Microsoft's Carbon Price and Its 5 Steps to Carbon Neutrality

      The number of companies taking tangible steps to prepare for and prosper in a lower-carbon economy is growing -- even absent a national carbon tax or cap-and-trade regime. Their actions speak much louder .... To help ensure access to power for its large data center servers near San Antonio, Microsoft purchased RECs in signing a 20-year wholesale power agreement to for electricity from a 110 megawatt wind farm near Fort Worth – the Keechi Wind Project – set to open in 2015.

    5. Google, Microsoft and Apple data center projects use renewable energy

      Google, Microsoft and Apple data center projects use renewable energy

      Data center managers' interest in power has changed as energy costs rise. Large data centers, such as Apple's and Google's, are turning to renewable energy generation to offset the cost. Along the way, these early adopters are dealing with varied challenges. Businesses spend almost as much on power and cooling as they do on data center servers, according to International Data Corp., an analyst firm based in Framingham, Mass. Rather than simply buy traditional oil- or coal-based electricity,

      New Facebook data center to be powered by wind energy

      Facebook has been working to establish a more environmentally friendly presence in recent years. As such, the company has been moving to become more inclusive of renewable energy of various types. Clean power can help the social media giant reduce the emissions it produces on a yearly basis, but it can also help the company avoid some of the costs associated with more conventional forms of energy.

    7. Can fuel cells integrated into server racks power data centers?

      Can fuel cells integrated into server racks power data centers?

      In a recent blog post, Microsoft senior research program manager Sean James shared the findings of a research paper on fuel cell powered data centers. This study described the “collapse of the entire energy supply chain — from the power plant to the server motherboard — into the confines of a server single cabinet.”
