Should new Data Centres be built on greenfield or brownfield sites?

 

Greenfield or brownfield? There is no easy answer to the question of which has the least impact on the environment. At Evolution Data Centres we are committed to sustainable data centre construction and operation but choosing which way to go probably needs to be decided on a case by case basis. In this article we discuss the merits and challenges of both.

Data Centre Sustainability Priorities

 

Tackling sustainability is a daunting task for data centre operators, to affect positive change we need to be challengers, but we also run a business so our solutions have to be financially viable and mature enough to be deployed and managed in mission critical facilities.

Understanding and selecting the right technology from the wide range of sustainability solutions can be challenging. At Evolution Data Centres the top two questions that we always ask are “how feasible is this?” and “how impactful will this be?”.

In our quadrant model, we have ranked the various solutions by their feasibility vs their sustainability impact. Unsurprisingly our key priorities are in the top right quadrant (high feasibility and high impact), while exploring tomorrow’s solutions in other areas of the chart.

Renewable Power Sources Ranking

 

Not all renewables are created equal. Particularly for data centres which need very reliable power supply, intermittency is a big issue. In this infographic we have ranked the key renewable types by their capacity factor (a measure of constancy); it highlights how attractive baseload sources like geothermal are for data centres compared to much-hyped wind and solar.

Today, Asia’s DC industry is behind other regions in using clean power. This is particularly regrettable because of the abundant supply of baseload renewables resource in the region.

Data Centre Sustainability

 

At Evolution we are acutely aware of the full sustainable lifecycle of a Data Centre and take this into consideration as we plan, build, and operate our facilities.

Everything from choosing the correct location, material selection, efficient design, and renewable power source, through to how you will operate reflect on the level of impact these facilities have on the environment.

To ensure you cover the full lifecycle of a truly sustainable Data Centre you need to plan from initial conception though to commissioning. You need to incorporate this from initial concept to ensure you are really delivering a fully sustainable facility.

If not, are you too late?
