Greening the Future Data Center Infrastructure via the GE Aeroderivative Technology and Microgrid Controls

June 15, 2022

Greening the Future Data Center
Some data centers consume more energy than a large town or small city. But those towns and cities have time to relax and shut down. While data centers are critical infrastructure, they also run our worlds critical infrastructure – so keeping them online ca be a matter of life and death. Combine this with the continued need for more sustainable operations, renewable energy goals and objectives, and a dramatic increase for data storage services – and you have an interesting challenge. The Data Centers Industry went through a massive growth pattern in the past decade due to cloud computing transformation, hyperscale, 5G networks and other technological and socioeconomic changes. This technological evolution introduced challenges
to the Data Centers owners in terms of sustainability, cost effectiveness and reliable operation. Per Seagate.com , the expected growth for data centers will go from 33 ZB in 2018 to 175 Zetabytes (1 Zetabyte = Billion Terabytes) by 2025

EV BATTERY CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS

whitePaper | October 7, 2022

Automakers and their suppliers have always faced a host of challenges, and this decade is no exception. There is an urgent need for answers to several trends: the increased consumer demand for EVs, legislation for reduced emissions, and the rise in urbanization. In fact, consumers and policymakers alike are calling for more sustainable and more advanced vehicles that do not compromise on performance or safety. Just this year, an EY survey of 13 developed nations indicated that 41% of those intending to buy a new vehicle in the year ahead would choose a BEV (battery electric vehicle), HEV (hybrid electric vehicle), or PHEV (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle).

Facebook's U.S. Renewable Energy Impact Study

whitePaper | June 1, 2021

In 2011, Facebook was one of the first companies to commit to supporting its facilities with 100% renewable energy. Today, the company’s U.S. data center fleet is supported by 100% renewable energy, and Facebook is on track to maintain this commitment for future data center developments and expansions. Facebook’s ability to achieve this commitment is in large part due to its pioneering approach to renewable energy procurement, which to date has resulted in 55 new solar and wind projects adding 5,763 megawatts (MW) of clean electricity to the U.S. grid.

How to make the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles smart

whitePaper | November 30, 2022

Renewable energies and the increasing emergence of electric vehicles are putting a strain on the electricity grid. The former are not constantly available, and the latter require additional energy while charging. This leads to the need for introducing a new, smart charging infrastructure to avoid instabilities at the grid level. This white paper explains what is involved in making a charging infrastructure truly “smart” and what obstacles can be expected along the way. It also outlines why vehicle owners do not need to fear batteries degradation, and which semiconductor devices and other supporting technologies Infineon provides for such applications.
