It’s common knowledge that demand for data storage is outstripping the ability of many national grid networks to supply the capacity, transmission or distribution required to keep up with the needs of their market.
Onsite, natural gas-based generation can be the solution to grid power constraints. This could be a bridging solution enabling speed to market with the grid catching up a year or two down the line. It might be a supplement to an existing grid supply to enable expansion. Equally, it might make sense to go off grid completely and for the longer term.
Let’s examine the benefits of an onsite power generation plant using the ‘energy trilemma’, a well-known priority conflict model used to establish the required balance between security of supply, cost and sustainability.
