      New York State commits to renewable energy – who’s next?

      New York has officially set a goal to have at least half of its power to come from renewable sources by 2030. It’s the latest entity and the fourth state in the U.S. to set the bar high for clean power, abet with some sweeteners for the nuclear industry.

      Renewable energy: National noise vs. local action

      Last week the leaders of North America announced Yet Another Grand Plan (YAGP) to reduce carbon emissions. Sounds great, but data centers need to focus on the local if they want to tap into clean energy. National leaders can set the tone, but more often than not, policy makers at the local, city and state level are setting the stage (or blocking the runway) for increased access to renewable power.

      Editorial: Don’t believe the myth that corporations oppose green initiatives

      There is a persistent myth that U.S. corporations oppose green initiatives. To the contrary, many are embracing a green future and reduced carbon footprints as profitable strategic investments. According to the Rocky Mountain Institute, a clean-energy think tank, U.S. companies bought nearly three times as much solar and wind power under long-term contracts in 2015 as they did in 2014. How significant is that?

    7. How to Reuse Waste Heat from Data Centers Intelligently

      How to Reuse Waste Heat from Data Centers Intelligently

      Data centers worldwide are energy transformation devices. They draw in raw electric power on one side, spin a few electrons around, spit out a bit of useful work, and then shed more than 98 percent of the electricity as not-so-useful low-grade heat energy. They are almost the opposite of hydroelectric dams and wind turbines,

      Local governments may force faster green data center adoption

      by Doug Mohney

      Nobody knows quite how or if the Paris COP21 agreement will meet its goals.

But local government goals to move to renewable energy may trump tighter tax regulation. Your data center may become a green data center even if isn't actively planning to do so today.

The region is an infrastructure builder’s dream come true, with its cold climate, abundant renewable energy sources, political stability and a highly educated workforce.
