Description

Information technology and service provider companies are turning to renewable energy to meet sustainability goals because of high energy consumption and excessive emissions from data centers. Companies are investing in on-site renewable energy projects or partnering with utility companies to expand their green footprint. This study establishes that emerging markets hold great potential for green data center expansion, as some of them are focused on increasing renewable-energy generation and improving grid infrastructure. It also identifies potential emerging markets for green data center expansion by 2020.
