A growing number of data center operators are looking to reduce or eliminate onsite diesel generators. But what will take their place? Microgrids are one of the top contenders to provide sustainable onsite power for data centers because they offer resilience. With a microgrid, data centers can operate independently of the grid during outages and times of crisis. Data center microgrids can also integrate renewable energy sources, which can reduce carbon emissions.
If you’re not familiar with microgrids, you may be concerned about the complexity and reliability of the technology. But, they’ve been around for decades – we just didn’t call them microgrids twenty years ago. Today’s microgrids are a source of dynamic power that can seamlessly integrate electricity from a number of distributed sources.
Register today, at no cost, for the webinar “Beyond Diesel: Sustainable Onsite Power for Data Centers,” scheduled for November 4 at 2 p.m. EST.
Join Data Center Frontier’s Editor in Chief Rich Miller for an hour long webinar on November 4, 2021 at 2pm. Rich will discuss why data center operators should consider integrating a microgrid into their design. He’ll be joined by Carsten Baumann, Director Strategic Initiative & Solution Architect at Schneider Electric, one of the leading players in the microgrid space. Kevin Normandeau, the publisher of Microgrid Knowledge, will also join in the discussion.
Attendees will learn how microgrids give data centers the ability to generate their own renewable and sustainable power onsite. Rich, Carsten and Kevin will discuss:
- Data center power options
- The limitations, risks, and misconceptions of implementing microgrids
There will be a live question and answer session during the event, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions of the speakers.
Don’t miss this live webinar and discussion on Thursday, October 7th. Register today for “Beyond Diesel: Sustainable Onsite Power for Data Centers.”
