Ed Ansett, founder and chairman of i3 Solutions Group, explains why a whole lifecycle of carbon emissions is crucial to ensure data centre sustainability.
Why trends in data centre location and scale make combined heat and power (CHP) a viable option for grid level GHG abatement, writes Ed Ansett, chairman, i3 Solutions Group
Embodied carbon costs are mainly incurred at the construction stage of any building project. However, these costs can go further than simply the carbon price of materials including concrete and steel, and their use.
Untold riches await whoever can provide long term energy storage without a high GHG tariff, says Ed Ansett, founder and chairman of i3 Solutions Group, as he examines the complexities of the emerging energy storage technology scene.
Decarbonising the Grid and other benefits – addressing major climate challenges with new data centre design
Why trends in data centre location and scale make Combined Heat and Power (CHP) designs a viable option for grid level GHG abatement. Author: Ed Ansett, Chairman at i3 Solutions Group
A piece written by Ed Ansett, Founder, i3 Solutions Group, on how data centres can expect to engage with utilities in 2022 and onwards.
For data centres the journey to carbon net zero operations began over ten years ago. With the pace now accelerating, Ed Ansett explains how the sector has built upon the imperative for energy efficiency and is today deploying strategies which put data centres at the heart of sustainable energy supply and distribution.
Data centre developers will need to demonstrate policies that address climate change, with power saving and a commitment to net zero a cornerstone of all future builds, says Ed Ansett.
How electricity price volatility and the race to grid sustainability is accelerating demand response opportunities in data centres
To date much of the data centre sector has declared itself unready to consider demand response– otherwise called demand side response (DSR). There has often been a refusal to engage because prevailing attitudes are that it is too much trouble.
Perhaps attitudes may change now that individuals and associations representing a wide range of energy intensive industries such as glass and steelmaking are on TV news programmes warning governments that high energy costs could bankrupt them…

Ed Ansett, chairman and founder, i3 Solutions Group explains how data centre power demand is set to grow, leading to increasing public awareness and why it requires a response through greater grid interactivity.
In this article Ed Ansett shares how the data centre sector can address public concerns over data centre power usage in the UK and Ireland with demand response solutions.
Datacentre sector hits back at claims that West London electricity grid capacity crunch is its fault
Ed Ansett, Founder, i3 Solutions Group, shares his thoughts on West London data centre as the cause of a potential ban on new housing developments.

An article written by Ed Ansett, Founder, i3 Solutions Group on Amsterdam’s Server Sleep State legislation
Ed Ansett, founder of i3 Solutions Group, shares how data centres can overcome utility power constraints – and rectify undeserved bad press – by utilising multidirectional distributed energy resources
Global emissions from new build projects are at record levels. Consequently, construction is moving further away from, not closer to net zero buildings. With the current focus very much on the carbon footprint of facility operations, a new white paper presents the case for taking a Whole Life Carbon approach when assessing data centre carbon impact.
Despite an ever-increasing number of quality colocation facilities to choose from, organisations often struggle to pick the right data centre partner for their needs. What are the five key questions that an organisation should ask when selecting a colocation facility and why are the answers so important?
