This paper presents an overview of the application of co-generation technology to data centers. Data center powers are increasing at an ever increasing rate and the power and cooling supply to these data centers are putting pressure on businesses to evaluate the issues related to the delivery of power and cooling.

This paper will present the key features of the cogeneration technology and where it might make business sense to consider its application.
