Green Ammonia in Data Center Energy Sustainability

Here’s an article posted in datacenterdynamics that explains how Green Ammonia revolutionizes data center energy sustainability

According to the article,

Challenge of Data Center Energy Consumption
: Data centers, crucial for digital infrastructure, consume vast amounts of energy, currently accounting for about two percent of global energy usage. Their energy demands are escalating due to the growth of digital services and cloud computing.

Reliance on Renewable Energy: While some data centers claim to be powered by renewable energy, they often use renewable energy certificates (RECs) or power purchase agreements, which can be economically challenging and lack long-term sustainability.

Introduction of Green Ammonia: Fujitsu proposes green ammonia as a potential solution to the energy demands of data centers. Green ammonia is produced using renewable energy sources like solar and wind, making it a sustainable option.

Advantages Over Hydrogen: Green ammonia offers advantages over hydrogen in terms of storage and distribution. Its properties make it more affordable and easier to handle compared to hydrogen, which has extreme cryogenic properties.

Potential Applications and Challenges: Green ammonia can serve as a fuel directly or be converted back into hydrogen. However, its widespread adoption requires solving various material science and engineering challenges, which can be addressed through advanced technologies like high-performance computing (HPC), quantum computing, AI, and material sciences research.

Role in Powering Digital Economies: As data centers grow in size and importance, it’s crucial to power them with renewable energy sources. Green ammonia not only offers a pathway to a sustainable future but also provides reliable backup power to mitigate stresses on the power grid.
