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. These evaluations stem from three key concerns in providing power to IT equipment in data centers — total cost of power delivery, reliability of power delivery, and finally the availability of power. This paper will present the key features of the cogeneration technology and where it might make business sense to consider its application.
