Carbon-free Energy - setting the bar on 24/7 renewable energy for data centres
It can be a surprising fact that "100% renewable energy" does not necessarily mean zero carbon emissions. A simplistic approach will not cut it anymore… as the market has become wiser to the various shades of green. Operators who were praised for their Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) based supply only two years ago are now facing accusations of green washing. Local, time matching, additional energy is becoming top of mind for market leaders and shaping the new market standards.
How can the data centre industry deliver what Google and the UN Energy Compact are promoting as Carbon-free Energy (CFE)? The challenge is not only on energy procurement and renewable portfolio management, but also on tracking and reporting energy and carbon on short time intervals. Embracing CFE as an opportunity

• Why it is the logical next step on the net zero journey for the DC industry
• What building blocks are required to progress towards CFE
• Where to start with time matching and associated carbon monitoring
