Case Study – Towards a more Sustainable Data Center Design Using a CHP

The paper outlines benefits such as decentralization of energy production, use of renewable energy, improvement of energy usage and power distribution efficiencies together with how the waste heat harvested on-site is re-used.

It says: “Using natural gas a fuel…a design that involves the use of CHP production at the site of the end-user eliminates power transmission losses, enables capturing the heat from the exhaust of a gas turbine, so improving the overall efficiency of the power production process.”

Global MEP design firms, i3 Solutions Group and EYP Mission Critical Facilities Inc. are together publishing a series of detailed white papers to encourage open debate in the data centre industry. The series is designed to help inform decision making in the move towards carbon neutrality by 2030.
