With green credentials that include the UK’s lowest carbon energy intensity, increasing access to RERs, low-cost land and political backing, are the pieces in place for Scotland to fulfil its data centre sector potential?
Ten years ago when i3 Solutions Group was founded, a data centre design of 15MW – 20MW would be bracketed in the medium-to-large category. Today, thanks to the hyperscalers and large commercial data centre developers, projects ten times that size are not unusual.
Energy transition is both a global and local phenomenon. As such it means different things to different people. For oil and gas companies it means moving away from fossil fuels. For those in the business of generating power, it means a shift to renewable energy resources (RERs).
Against a backdrop of ongoing uncertainty in the energy market, the UK datacentre market is readying itself for ‘worst case’ planned power cuts this winter. Ed Ansett, our Chairman and Founder, discusses the topic further with Caroline Donnelly, Data Centre Editor at ComputerWeekly.com.
