Although it has been well reported that the use of diesel gensets for back-up power has a negligible environmental effect, there is still a concerted drive to seek more sustainable alternatives. While the diesel backup gensets may have a limited environmental impact, using them for extended periods of time to power sites to feed energy back into the grid is not a sustainable solution to growing electricity demand. Until datacentre operators transition their backup generators from diesel to cleaner alternatives, they should not be used to power datacentres for extended periods of time or feed energy back into the grid. This talk looks at the role of diesel gensets and alternative options being developed and deployed.
