There’s a pioneering effort going on in building sustainable data centers. Call them the New Generation Data Centers. Here are a few examples:

Modular Data Center (MDC): portable, flexible and containerized (integrated with all components) to meet scalability requirements of ever growing computing demands. It’s the answer to rapid expansion of a Data Center. Amazon and Google were the early adopters of a MDC.

Combined Heating, Cooling & Power (CHCP): Having a captive CHCP facility that produce both power and thermal energy, can improve PUE significantly. CHCP dramatically improves both energy efficiency and reliability. Princeton University has a CHCP plant for its main campus and High Performance Computing Research Center.

Wind-powered Data Centers: A $70 million data center project is coming up outside Austin, Texas completely powered by wind energy.

Geo-thermal powered Data Center: A new Data Center is coming up in Iceland powered by geo-thermal and will be the world’s first zero-carbon Data Center.

There’s clearly a quiet revolution happening in the world of Data Centers in their quest for driving massive energy efficiencies. We are glad we chose Data Centers as the first sector in our journey of pioneering Sustainable solutions for tomorrow.
