    1. CenturyLink Uses Natural Gas to Power Data Center

      CenturyLink Uses Natural Gas to Power Data Center

      Fuel cells that run on natural gas continue to make their way into the data center market. Following several major web-scale data center deployments, Sunnyvale, California-based Bloom Energy has sold a 500kW on-site power generation plant to CenturyLink, which has deployed it to power an expansion of its data center in Southern California.

      Microsoft gets data centres powered up for big UPS turn-off

      The problem with data centres is that you have to plug them in. Or to put it another way, the problem with data centres is that they draw their power from a national grid and this ultimately narrows the cost efficiency structure under which they can operate. Conspicuously creaky and ageing grid networks in (even) advanced first-world nations don’t make matters any better.

      How Microsoft Got Rid of the Big Data Center UPS

      Big uninterruptible power supply cabinets and rows of batteries that are similar in size to the ones under the hood of your car have been an unquestioned data center mainstay for years. This infrastructure is what ensures servers keep running between the time the utility power feed goes down and backup generators get a chance to start and stabilize.

    4. How a lake's microbes can power fuel cells

      How a lake's microbes can power fuel cells

      Looking for a new site for a data center? Well, the banks of a salt lake in Washington State might provide the perfect power-friendly real estate solution. Scientists have discovered that microbes in spa tourist stop Soap Lake, a three-hour drive from Seattle, organically produce biohydrogen. Hydrogen can be used to create power via fuel cells. Now, the results aren't all in, so don't go packing the kids just yet, but if the scientists are right, we may have a new power source.

    5. 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.

    7. Phoenix Utility to Pilot Data Center Without Generator

      Phoenix Utility to Pilot Data Center Without Generator

      There is only so many ways to build a data center without a generator or some other kind of backup power source and still have the level of reliability companies that rely on their applications to stay up around the clock need. One way is to feed the data center power directly from more reliable parts of the grid. BaseLayer, the company in the process of being spun out of the Phoenix-based data center provider IO, has partnered with Phoenix-area public utility Salt River Project to attempt just that.

      Can fuel cells find a home in the data center?

      A few weeks ago at a ribbon cutting in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Microsoft officially announced that biogas was flowing to fuel cells to power its experimental data center there. The data center is located by the Dry Creek water treatment plant and has direct access to biogas harvested from the facility to power the fuel cells that are in turn powering its data center. The whole system is completely renewable.

      A green data center with an autonomous power supply

      A new data center in the United States is generating electricity for its servers entirely from renewable sources, converting biogas from a sewage treatment plant into electricity and water. Siemens implemented the pilot project, which recently went into operation, together with Microsoft and FuelCell Energy.
