How Microgrids for Data Centers Increase Resilience, Optimize Costs, and Improve Sustainability

As colocation and service provider data center operators explore new ways to improve their facilities’ resilience against grid instability, many face continued financial and environmental pressures. The newest microgrid technology can help colocation and service provider data centers further enhance uptime, reduce energy spend, and minimize carbon footprint. This paper introduces how microgrids use advanced analytics to intelligently manage energy assets (gensets, CCHP, renewables, loads), how microgrid design is optimized through feasibility studies, how modular architectures simplify design and installation, and how financing options, incentives, and operational models can help reduce risks and maximize returns.
