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.
Rising air pollution in Delhi has forced the authorities to issue a ban on the use of diesel generators from October 15, 2020 until further orders.
As demand for online data storage grows, many of the market's largest cloud-service providers have seen tremendous growth in their capacities which resulted in a significant increase in power demands.

A senator key to infrastructure and trucking policy negotiations on Capitol Hill has proposed modernizing the country’s transportation grid via green-centric initiatives.
Through a so-called green infrastructure package, Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey (D), a member of the trucking and surface transportation panels, is calling on colleagues to reduce energy consumption, incorporate climate change science into transportation projects and expand the affordability and availability of electric and energy-efficient vehicles.
The senator also proposes investments in new energy-efficient schools, improvements in drinking water and reducing emissions at airports, ports and waterways.
Any deal on an infrastructure package must include measures to promote our clean-energy economy and mitigate the dangers posed by climate change.
Clayton Costello, the operations manager at CK Power, a manufacturer and distributor of power generation equipment believes the perception of diesel as sooty, unreliable and a major pollutant isn't true.
