WHITE PAPER: 2021 Texas Winter Storm
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.

Thank you for your outstanding support during the humanitarian relief efforts after Hurricane Sandy. We here at DLA Energy appreciate your committed support to those impacted by the storm. Your herculean effort and dedication has helped millions of Americans during this devastating period. Your leadership on the ground and swift response to DLA Energy, FEMA, and state and local governments was critical the mission success
Each of your members displayed a willingness to go above and beyond the call to ensure multiple delivery missions to facilities. You kept the principal Aerial Port of Debarkation generations filled for constant use for all Joint Warfighter’s benefit so they could meet mission. Your Emergency Response Team was prepared and again, integrated across the board with key stakeholders.
The thanks goes out to you and your outstanding crew. I handled life support for the main port in Port-au-Prince, and while Foster Fuels was present, fuel was not just taken care of, but incredibly flexible and adaptive to multiple needs. It was as easy as simply talking with your folks and they leaned forward and took care of the need.
I just wanted to take a moment and commend your company and the fine crew that I had the pleasure of working with during the Kentucky Ice Storms. In my short time with FEMA and working seven major disasters, I have never worked with any contracting team that was more professional and such a pleasure to work with. We faces incredible weather conditions and long hours but I never heard one complaint out of the entire crew. The only thing I heard was what can we do now and how can we better complete and make the mission a success.
