The natural gas engine is now faster, more affordable, and provides a cleaner option to power data centers. While diesel generators have typically served as back-up power, Wartsila’s technologies can provide the quick-start capabilities needed, while also providing a source of revenue for select energy markets. Given the inherently low emissions, Wartsila will explore a case study where a data center, using gas generators, can generate extra revenue through participation in the local electricity market—notably the SPP (Southwest Power Pool). Combined with battery energy storage, this microgrid solution will allow the integration of intermittent renewable energy sources whether already existing, or be able to accommodate new sources coming online as data center owners continue their path forward to a 100% carbon-free future.
