To solve for ageing power infrastructure, data center leaders are turning to cutting-edge technology like microgrids to deliver electricity more reliably, reduce the impact of power outages, and restore service faster when outages occur.
But here's the challenge: Can microgrids support critical infrastructure requirements? Can they become the preferred backup method for data centers? And can they become the bridge to support emerging power designs, including renewable natural gas, solar, and other power solutions?
In this webcast, we'll explore the makings of the modern microgrid and dispel legacy paradigms around power design and emerging power solutions. Specifically, we'll discuss:
- The state of power and the grid today
- Overcoming climate and sustainability challenges
- Microgrids in the data center space
- What's new in data center power? ESG, grid stability, and resiliency
- Tips for getting started
