Natural Gas Generators For Data Centers

3 Reasons To Consider A Natural Gas Generator For A Data Center

A new white paper from INNIO explores three primary benefits that data center operators can see with fast-start natural gas generators: 1ST is increased reliability 2ND is reduced emissions, and 3RD is opportunities to monetize stranded assets.  

Data center energy usage has been on a sharp upward trend in recent years, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. According to Innio, “despite efficiency gains over time, with the global expansion of data centers, electricity demand continues to grow. Individual data centers or campuses can require hundreds of kilowatts to meet their power supply needs.”
The First benefit, they provide reliability. Natural gas-powered generators provide cutting edge performance for data centers. Built-in storage with the highly reliable natural gas grid avoids the risks of limited run times and refueling. 

The Second benefit to having quick-start natural gas generators on site is that they can lower a data center’s emissions. The paper sites reductions of 80% to 90% for NOx and up to 25% for carbon dioxide (CO2). 

The Third benefit discussed in the paper is that natural gas generators provide new monetization opportunities for data centers. Natural gas generators provide data center operators with the chance to engage in demand response, curtailable tariffs and/or emergency standby participation –all while avoiding coincident peak charges.
We here at Generator Source have many Natural Gas and Diesel generator options for the Data Center community and the resources to help find the right generator for your application.

Generator Source has two locations of business. One location is in Brighton CO where we buy, sell, and service surplus and used industrial generators. The second location is in Jacksonville FL where we also buy, sell and service surplus and used industrial generators.
