Share of Data Center Energy Consumption Globally (Terawatt Hours)

In the digital era, our thirst for computing power has surged dramatically.

This encompasses everything from basic computing needs to complex AI algorithms, large-scale data analytics, and intensive scientific research.

At the heart of this digital expansion are data centers, which, while crucial to our digital infrastructure, have become substantial consumers of global electricity.

It's projected that by 2030, data centers might consume as much as 8% of the world's energy.

This trend presents a significant challenge in the journey towards energy decarbonization.

The key question is: how can we fulfill the growing energy requirements of these data-intensive operations while also committing to reducing our carbon footprint?
