    1. Another high profile datacenter goes Bloom

      Another high profile datacenter goes Bloom

      After this summer’s announcement from eBay that its new datacenter was running on 100 percent fuel cell generated energy provided by equipment from Bloom Energy, it looked like the fuel cell business was really moving forward. The announcement Wednesday that financial services giant JP Morgan Chase was installing a pilot 500kW Bloom energy datacenter power system at its Delaware site, looks to further cement the acceptance of the fuel cell as a standard energy supply for datacenters.

      JPMorgan, Chase & Co. says its Christiana, Del. data center will use 500 kW of Delaware-built Bloom Energy "fuel cells," which produce energy from natural gas, not by burning it, but through an "electrochemical reaction" that makes the cells eligible for green-energy tax breaks and government incentives.

      Green Grid Warns Electric Harmonics Cause Data Centre Waste

      Organisations with efficient data centres may still be wasting power thanks to harmonics in the power supply, according to the Green Grid. Data centres maybe optimised to use low power, and produce a little waste heat as possible, but electrical loads can cause a dirty current signal, and data centre managers need to know how to reduce the losses this causes, according to a White Paper that is being presented at the annual European conference of the Green Grid IT efficiency consortium, held this week in the Siemens Centre in Brussels.

      Google makes its 13th clean energy investment in 3 years

      On Thursday Google announced its 13th investment in a clean energy project over a three year period — the clean energy from all of these projects, like solar and wind farms, is enough to power 500,000 (U.S.) homes and Google has put in over $1 billion into these ventures. This time, the project is a large solar panel farm that’s being built in the Imperial County in California, and Google is investing $103 million into it.

    5. Another California data center turns to fuel cells

      Another California data center turns to fuel cells

      A small, but growing, amount of data centers in California are having fuel cells installed onsite, offering a cleaner and more direct way to access electricity compared to the power grid. The latest came on Monday, when telecommunications company CenturyLink announced that it’s bought a couple fuel cells from startup Bloom Energy to help power a data center in Irvine, California.

      HP Doubles Down on Green Data Center with New Case Studies, Solutions

      Hot on the heels of IBM and Dell, Hewlett Packard is developing new technologies to help organizations build more more energy efficient data centers. In one of its latest green initiatives, the company teamed up with Intel and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to install a liquid-cooled supercomputer in the Department of Energy’s recently opened ESIF research facility.

      New eBay Data Center Runs Almost Entirely On Bloom Fuel Cells

      eBay is raising the bar (again) when it comes to sourcing power for massive data centers. Its massive new facility in Salt Lake City – the main hub of technology powering more than $175 billion in annual e-commerce activity – uses fuel cells “servers” from Bloom Energy as the primary power source.

      Akamai's data center carbon fight

      As operator of one of the world’s largest and most important content delivery networks, Akamai has become one of the poster children for the age of the Cloud and for what may be wrong with it. Greenpeace included it on the list of high-profile tech companies representative of the Cloud’s environmental impact, thereby thrusting the company into the limelight of public scrutiny of the issue.

    10. Bloom's Fuel Cells: Just How Green Is a Bloom Box?

      Bloom's Fuel Cells: Just How Green Is a Bloom Box?

      Lindsay Leveen has been writing about Bloom Energy's fuel cell CO2 emissions for some time. Leveen is a chemical engineer, a technologist, an experienced consultant and the author of a book on hydrogen power and fuel cells. On the phone, he is reasonable and personable -- but on the internet, he's a bit of a, well, let's just say he's opinionated. Here is his blog. The blog takes aim at overhyped greentech companies with a focus on the John Doerr/Al Gore/Vinod Khosla axis of doom and its dastardly portfolio companies such as Bloom and KiOR.
