The evolution of back up power in data centers

With sustainability having never been higher on the agenda for data center operators, back up power is a focal point for discussion. It is widely accepted that legacy power solutions cannot and will not be simply replaced with carbon neutral solutions. In this talk we explore the innovation and advancement in technology that will increase performance, drive efficiency and reduce emissions – we also look at the alternative solutions available which should be considered for new projects.

Now that data has become the currency of the 4th Industrial Revolution, the urgency for always-on information access has never been greater. And with the influx of new mission critical services like autonomous vehicles and medical wearables, uptime has become sacrosanct. In parallel, the sustainability imperative is driving carbon reduction throughout the data center ecosystem. How are facility builders and providers navigating these seemingly contradictory priorities? Join Kohler Data Center’s Sean Farney as he prognosticates about how the industry is solving this dilemma. You’ll hear about both revolutionary- utility scale batteries and hydrogen fuel cells- and evolutionary- alternative fuels and green operations- approaches to answering this challenge while maintaining highly available digital infrastructure.

In this session, Schneider Electric’s Carsten Baumann discusses with DIN what can replace diesel gen-sets as the prominent back up power in data centers as we move towards net zero. How realistic are the available options from a Capex and Opex perspective and do these technologies really provide the clean, green power they promise once all the factors are considered?
