UNEXPECTED WINTER WEATHER POSES CHALLENGES TO DATA CENTERS
This white paper looks at the lessons that data centers learned from the Texas winter storm, in relation to fuel quality, delivery, and procurement. It looks at what data center owners can do to prepare their fuel supplies for the next event that might force their facilities to switch to generator power. It examines how fuel testing, fuel treatments, and fuel polishing can contribute to higher fuel efficiency, which can help to ensure that data center generators will function properly in emergencies such as extreme cold. Also, it looks at how relationships and contracting with national fuel providers can help data center owners to enable fuel delivery and procurement, even during prolonged weather events.
