The Renewable Energy Challenge

<img src="/sites/datacenterknowledge.com/files/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/renewables.jpg" width="470" height="165" /> In our Special Report: Data Centers and Renewable Energy, we look at the challenges of implementing renewable energy solutions in data centers, and also highlight early adopters who have implemented on-site renewable solutions.

In coming years, the data center industry will face growing pressure to find workable ways to integrate renewable energy sources into projects. The demand is being driven by two trends: the growth of corporate social responsibility programs that focus on carbon neutrality, and the potential for federal legislation in the U.S. that will place caps on carbon emissions.

But most renewable energy sources come with a premium price tag and have problems reaching the scale required to successfully support the power requirements of an entire data center.
