The Role of Distributed Generation and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Systems in Data Centers

Abstract:This report reviews how distributed generation (DG) resources such as fuel cells, reciprocating engines, and gas turbines -- particularly when configured in combined heat and power (CHP) mode -- can offer powerful energy efficiency savings in data centers, especially when integrated with other energy efficiency measures.
