ABSTRACT: CH2M HILL /IDC Architects, with Presco Energy, will use Nevada’s innovative Star Peak Energy Center as an example of how multiple renewable energy sources can be combined to support a new generation of sustainable data center developments. The Star Peak site includes geothermal resources capable of powering a 2.5MW data center. Our presentation will explain the financial analysis process that leads to advanced green design concepts for high-performance data centers, as well as the intricacies of linking a data center client’s resources and requirements to the needs of individual data center market segments, while producing secure and economical green energy.
