Bringing our data centers closer to existing power sources avoids electricity waste because it minimizes the need for long transmission and distribution lines. We partner with the power generator to bring the workload to the source of energy, not the other way around.
When the sun is shining and the wind is blowing, renewables are a reliable source of energy, and we make the most of those clean watts. But when energy demand exceeds supply it creates congestion on the grid. We respond by reducing or pausing our energy consumption altogether. By stepping out of the way during peak demand, we minimize waste from traffic imbalances and stabilize energy demand.
Each modular data center is engineered with powerful fans to cool the hardware that’s running. The well-ordered heat dissipation requires minimal power, which ensures 96% of the energy entering the container is used for computing purposes.
Prioritize Green and Clean
When building out new sites, we prioritize locations that have either green or clean energy sources. This strategy allows us to make use of stranded energy that would otherwise go to waste, reviving these assets to improve their long-term ability to provide power. Learn more about our Climate Action Strategy which emphasizes our impact on the clean energy market.
Investing in Renewables
Through strategic siting efforts, we leverage renewable energy to power our operations. But TIER 0 data centers don’t just consume renewable energy, they incentivize it. We offer renewable energy asset owners guaranteed offtake, eliminating their need to curtail during peak production times.
Stabilizing the Energy Grid
TIER 0 data centers are built to participate in demand response programs through flexible load management services. We bring stability to the grid by building our data centers near the source of power in regions that benefit from a load source that can alleviate congestion.
