Electrification is more than just a buzzword — it’s an environmental movement to achieve carbon neutrality. Replacing technologies that are powered by fossil fuels with technologies powered by renewable energy sources is a key ingredient in the decarbonization recipe. And, since data centers are one of the most energy-intensive types of buildings in the world — consuming between 10 and 50 times more energy per floor space than a typical building, according to the U.S. Department of Energy — electrifying the industry is a must.
