Data Centers Are Dependent on Diesel-fired Backup to Remain Operational When The Grid Goes Down

Posted by Rypos on Oct 6, 2021 2:34:00 PM

Demand for data centers increases as modern living becomes more digitized, using incredible amounts of energy. Supplying uninterrupted power to data centers 100% of the time is critical. Data centers must reduce their climate footprint if we are to mitigate climate change. Truthfully, with data centers, critical power is fueled by diesel generators, and reaching 100% renewable energy isn’t possible.

The Environment is Paying for Data Center Emissions

Posted by Rypos on Sep 24, 2021 3:30:00 PM

Data centers use comes at a cost to the environment. Data centers use an estimated 200 terawatt-hours each year, more than the annual energy consumption of some small countries. They also contribute to overall global and carbon emissions, with a predicted increase of 20% of global electricity demand by 2030. Essentially, data centers must implement environmental innovations to reduce the carbon footprint of data centers.

Understanding California Air Quality Management District

Posted by Rypos on Jun 10, 2021 12:30:00 PM

California has 35 local Air Districts regulated by the California Air Resources Board which are responsible for regional air quality planning, monitoring, and facility permitting. The districts issue legislation and administer air quality improvement programs. These Air Quality Management Districts, or AQMD's, are the California Air Resources Board's primary partners in ensuring clean air across the state of California.

Understanding Prop 1B: Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program

Posted by Rypos on Apr 22, 2021 8:45:00 AM

Proposition 1B, also known as the Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program, was approved in 2006 and has provided funding for projects that aim to reduce emissions. Prop 1B intends to reduce diesel air pollution from goods movement operations, which is broken down into two categories: heavy-duty trucks and transportation refrigeration units (TRU).

Senate Panel Advances Diesel Emissions Legislation

Posted by Rypos on Jul 31, 2019 3:00:00 PM

Legislation that aims to facilitate emissions reduction from diesel engines was easily approved April 10 by the committee that oversees surface transportation policy in the U.S. Senate.

Sponsored by Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) of 2019 would reauthorize the program at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through 2024 to assist firms with rebuilding or retrofitting diesel engines. The objective is for those updated engines to be able to comply with pollution standards.

The Environment and Public Works panel advanced the measure to the floor of the Senate by voice vote. Carper, the panel’s ranking Democrat, had initially authored the bill more than a decade ago with former Ohio Sen. George Voinovich (R).

“Year after year, DERA has cost-effectively reduced air pollution and fueled American job creation,” Carper said in a statement soon after the vote. “Boasting $13 of health and economic benefits for every $1 of federal investment, it’s no wonder that DERA enjoys such broad, bipartisan support.”
