    2. TechWatch: Why your data center needs a fuel cell generator

      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.

      The truth about 60 Minutes and the cleantech 'crash'

      60 Minutes aired a piece on the cleantech space on January 5. In the days that followed, I have had interesting conversations with clients about what was broadcast to 7.4 million viewers. Those discussions reinforced my belief that 60 Minutes missed the mark, and inspired me to write this blog on why cleantech is essential, massive, vibrant, and desired.

    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,

      Datacenter Renewable Power Done Right

      Facebook Iowa Data Center

      In 2007, the EPA released a study on datacenter power consumption at the request of the US Congress (EPA Report to Congress on Server and Data Center Efficiency). The report estimated that the power consumption of datacenters represented about 1.5% of the US Energy Budget in 2005 and this number would double by 2010. In a way, this report was believable in that datacenter usage was clearly on the increase.
