Green energy research could enhance data centre sustainability
Capitaland is working with energy providers to develop green solutions for its power-hungry data centre.
Capitaland, SP Group and Sembcorp Industries have signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly study the use of integrated energy solutions to power data centres, all as part of SP’s Energy Partnership Programme.
The study will focus on developing solutions to power Capitaland’s data centre, 9 Tang Seng Drive.
SP will lend its technical expertise in smart energy solutions, with research and testing undertaken at SP’s Concept Lab.
Sembcorp will be in charge of providing urban sustainability solutions to energy-intensive businesses, customised combinations of solar energy, energy storage, sustainable energy retail, and other innovative energy solutions.
The study also aims to determine how green hydrogen fuel cell technologies can be most efficiently deployed in Singapore to reduce the carbon footprint of data centres.
The feasibility study results planned for the second half of 2021, would potentially be applicable to benefit other data centres in Singapore
