As the world becomes increasingly digitised, demand for data centre services is rising rapidly. The goal is to power digital infrastructure with renewable energy but that is seen as a three-step process. The first step is to use offsets, followed by matching usage with like-for-like energy purchases. The final stage is direct consumption of locally generated renewables, either in real-time or stored from recent generation. This talk investigates the growing synergies between data centres and the energy system and how those collaborations can open the way to a sustainable future.
