Kohler Power has been named in The Business Intelligence Group’s 2021 Sustainability Awards program, securing the Sustainability Product of the Year award.
The company was named one of the Sustainability Product of the Year winners for its Kohler Tier 4 Final KD Series Generator, an industrial-grade generator that provides backup power for large hyperscale and regional global data centres. As the amount of data being created increases, the number of worldwide data centres will grow to support that demand. With that comes the increased need for reliable backup power, and an increasingly acute demand for power solutions that reduce environmental impacts wherever possible.
The Tier 4 Final KD Series Generator provides a key advantage over traditional systems, resulting in minimal maintenance demands for optimised continuity and maximised ease for users, all while meeting strict EPA-controlled sustainability requirements. The KD exhaust after-treatment technology eliminates the need for diesel particulate filters and diesel oxidation catalysts, resulting only in the harmless exhaust byproducts of nitrogen and steam. Meanwhile, the KD series engine control units and integrated sensors continually monitor and control all elements of the exhaust after-treatment system, delivering best-in-class emissions technology.
“Kohler has aggressive goals to be net-zero by 2035 and as a part of this journey, we recognise the significant role we play in helping data centre operators achieve their sustainability goals,” Melissa Reali-Elliott, digital marketing manager of data centres for Kohler Power, said. “A shared commitment to making the world a better place through the development of innovative energy-saving products has spearheaded sustainable, robust solutions for evolving power demands. We look forward to these products being even more widely embraced as a means for organisations to decrease their carbon footprint and ultimately build a greener digital future.”
