Ever wondered how hyperscale end users see the energy world? I was lucky today to get some great insights today from Jim Collins at Microsoft during his fireside chat at DCD San Francisco.
Some key points from the session were:
Microsoft has collaborated with a utility in Wyoming where they have used natural gas turbines at the datacenter in place of standby diesel machines. The utility can then call on these for fast start demand response in peak times.
There is real opportunity to have a more joined up collaborative world where utilities and data centers leverage battery and generation capacity rather than duplication and siloed thinking which prevails today.
If you get the chance to hear Jim talk I’d highly recommend it!
