Sustainability programs are no longer a nice to have for enterprises. In today's ecosystem, it's both a financial and social necessity.
Data centers are among the highest consumers of power, consuming more than 70 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity a year. Therefore, sourcing clean energy to power your IT operations is a critical path to implementing sustainable practices for your business and even can lower the TCO of your data center environment.
There are four ways clean energy can be sourced in your data center:
- Selecting the "green power" option from your local utility company
- Purchasing renewable energy certificates (or RECs)
- Purchasing renewable energy directly from a power plant developer
- Do it yourself
