Data Center Microgrids: Implementing Your Microgrid

Beyond providing energy resilience, a microgrid brings additional energy management, cost and sustainability benefits. These features are making microgrids increasingly attractive to data center operators who want a resilient energy infrastructure – something that can’t be achieved through traditional UPS and generator solutions.

In this white paper, the final installment in a three-part series, you’ll learn what it takes to finance, implement and operate a data center microgrid. The white paper explains the costs, benefits and incentives of microgrids.

It also outlines the steps required to build a microgrid from signing the contract to flipping the switch. Topics covered include interconnection and resilience testing, ongoing operations and maintenance, managing your relationship with the electric utility and modularity and future expansion.
