Powering Data Centers with Natural Gas: A Report on the Benefits of Natural Gas for Data Center Backup Power

Increasingly dynamic and reaching monumental scale in size and complexity, data centers are using record levels of power. Resilient, sustainable alternatives for emergency backup power is one way data centers are working towards greener operations.

One alternative, natural gas, is gaining attention.
At a time of growing concerns about climate change and the intense impact it poses on operations, data centers have come to rely on emergency generators to eliminate the risk of long-term power interruptions. Such generators have been the favored redundancy, though advancements in redundant systems using natural gas – among the cleanest fossil fuels – are emerging as a strong option worth exploring.
