Uninterrupted service is at the heart of successful data center operations. To operate reliably data centers require a stable temperature. Central to ensuring a stable temperature is a reliable supply of high-quality water for the cooling system.
In the upper Northwest of the U.S., we are helping ensure seamless data center service by providing water of sufficient quality and quantity to cool more than 60 megawatts of major data center companies’ server farms.
Paso Robles always discharged its treated effluent into California’s Salinas River. That is until changing influent and prolonged drought conditions spurred improvements at the city’s wastewater treatment plant. The plant now reclaims previously wasted resources, showcasing a sustainable and cost-effective approach to water quality and water supply resilience.
Tidal stream energy could theoretically supply more than 150 terawatt hours per annum globally. This represents a potential total global market of up to 50 gigawatts (GW) of generating capacity.
Tidal stream energy is a significant renewable energy source because, although it varies, the power output is highly predictable. As a result, it can help to balance supply and demand as part of a balanced energy mix alongside other renewable sources such as wind and solar power.
With climate change placing increasing pressure on budgets for flood alleviation schemes, and other measures to increase resilience, it is vital clients can access innovative funding models to ensure communities are protected. It’s equally vital that such projects engage fully with the people they protect and create a legacy that provides multiple, sustainable benefits for the community.
