Ensuring Security of Supply and enabling renewable energy
Data centres are perfectly primed to become active grid participants by providing frequency and balancing services through Demand Response. As a mission critical industry, data centres typically have numerous energy redundancy layers in their design to provide site resilience.
Some of these assets – standby generators, batteries and Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), are ideal sources to provide Security of Supply for the national power system via Demand Response services. In doing so, data centres become solution providers to the power system and enable more renewable energy to be consumed, all while benefiting from a new revenue stream for the business.
Security of Supply
Security of supply refers to the electricity industry providing appropriate electricity system capabilities to maintain normal supply to consumers. These capabilities are in the form of generation and transmission capacity which system operators use to meet electricity demand.
Recently this has been very challenging for the system operators as they strive towards decarbonisation, while ensuring security of electricity supply is achieved alongside economic development, while also balancing the need for adequate protection of end user costs.
