MAKE MONEY WITH POWER GENERATION ASSETS, SAVE DATA CENTER ENERGY COSTS AND REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

Gas-fired engine power plants provide a new, alternative energy source for data centers. Large internal combustion engines offer highly efficient, sustainable and cost-effective power – and replace back-up diesel generators. Redundant engine capacity can be used to sell electricity to the grid, opening a new business model for data center operators. Thanks to the efficiency of the gas engines, they provide power to the data center at lower price than grid electricity. In addition, switching to natural gas can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of a data center.

MERCHANT PLANT + EMERGENCY POWER


MERCHANT PLANT + EMERGENCY POWER


  • An independent power producer (IPP) or the data center operator builds a gas engine power plant at the data center site.

  • IPP sells electricity to the market on merchant basis. Data center purchases electricity from the market.

  • Data center operator and IPP sign an emergency supply contract. In case of grid failures, the data center receives emergency power from the engine power plant.

BENEFITS

BENEFITS

  • No need to buy and maintain emergency diesel power generators
  • Gas engines provide back-up power with less emissions than would be caused by testing and operating diesel equipment
  • No investments in dead assets – equipment used for emergencies is also serving other purpose










PRIMARY POWER


PRIMARY POWER



  • IPP or data center operator builds a gas engine power plant at the data center site.

  • Power plant serves as the primary source of power for the data center, providing the required redundancy. The redundancy capacity is used to sell electricity to the market.

  • Optional heat recovery systems are used to generate cooling power for the data center. Waste heat can also be sold for local district heating.

BENEFITS

BENEFITS

  • Power for the data center is generated from natural gas at competitive cost and with low environmental footprint.

  • Using of heat recovery for data center cooling may reduce electricity demand.
  • Data center operator gets more flexibility in choosing the site. Strong power grid is no longer a requirement.

  • New source of revenue – selling electricity and heat to the market.
  • Avoid investing in emergency-only diesel generators.
