Research is heading into the hands of artificial intelligence (AI) in a University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) study exploring how electric vehicle (EV) charging and grid modernization relate. Its findings could reveal more overlaps between these technologies to expedite grid adoption. What it demonstrates can guide governments of all levels toward the … [Read more...] about AI-Based Study Shows How Tech Is Essential for Grid Adoption of EVs
Data centers are a hot topic in renewable energy discourse. Big data proves data center renewable energy is the key to decentralized energy generation and distribution, making it the next shiny new buzzphrase of 2023's energy revolution. Modern expectations require data centers to be energy sinks, but they can also be powerhouses by generating more power and capturing what … [Read more...] about What Are the Limits of Sourcing Renewable Energy for Data Centers?
Artificial intelligence (AI) and data centers are inseparable. AI models require vast amounts of data and servers to store all that information, but the relationship can go deeper than that. AI needs data centers, but using AI in the data center itself can yield impressive benefits. Like any other AI implementation, successfully using these technologies in data centers hinges … [Read more...] about How to Leverage AI in the Data Center
Data centers are an integral part of modern life, but without electricity, they're just row after row of expensive paperweights. Hurricanes, wildfires and other natural disasters can knock out power for days or weeks, leaving operators scrambling to keep things running smoothly. However, there are ways data centers can remain operational despite the weather. Here's how they … [Read more...] about How Data Centers Should Prepare for and Prevent Power Outages
Airflow management aims to maintain and enhance IT equipment functions and the intake of air temperature allows for cooling in control temperatures and reduces cooling airflow as far as possible. If done correctly, the cooling capacity increases, and the operating cost reduces. While cooling optimization and airflow management awareness has improved in the last few decades, a … [Read more...] about Cooling Blunders That Can Hinder The Functioning Of Data Centers
