Sustainability is a growing concern for the industry as data centres face increasing pressure to work towards a sustainable, carbon net-zero future. As demand for data continues to increase, the data centre industry is expanding at a staggering rate and is fast becoming one of the world’s largest power consumers.
Our energy technology and expert people specialise in assisting the data centre industry to manage and lower energy consumption, costs, and carbon emissions.
Data Centres account for 2% of the world’s energy consumption, and large data facilities use around 40% of their energy keeping servers cool. There’s no pathway to carbon net zero without addressing the sizable energy consumption of data centres powering our increasingly digital economy.
Findings from a recent sentiment of the Data Centres and Data Transmission Networks report in partnership with the IEA.
