Reducing the carbon footprint of data centers

We have implemented and continue to work on multiple sustainability initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.​

In 2020 Evoque :​

  • Improved efficiencies reducing energy consumption by 1.9 MW ​
  • Decreased Electrical Grid Consumption by 11,590 MWh​
  • Eliminated 12,140 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions​

Evoque sustainability is focused in 3 areas

POWER GENERATION

GREEN UTILITIES

IMPROVED EFFICIENCIES

IN-HOUSE POWER GENERATION​

ROOFTOP SOLAR POWER​

SOLAR POWER​

Evoque has 750 kW of solar production capacity on the east coast, reducing the need for utility power.​

FUEL CELLS

FUEL CELLS

5.3MW is generated locally by high-efficiency fuel cells, eliminating grid transmission losses (~5%) and providing near-zero-emissions of oxides of nitrogen and sulfur​

Almost half of our US Utility Energy Composition comes from green sources

When sourcing energy providers, Evoque evaluates their sustainability impact,
with a focus on minimizing greenhouse emissions.

IMPROVED EFFICIENCIES​

Efficiency improvements include leveraging AI and machine learning to reduce power utilization in power and cooling.​

  • Cooling in data centers is rarely uniform. Applying AI allows quick and effective management of the thermal balance, intuitively reducing the speed of lightly loaded units while increasing units serving hotspots.​
  • AI also allows data centers to track the real power draw of individual equipment throughout the day, allowing teams to locate high draw equipment for energy optimization.​

Autonomous control of HVAC systems in a data center, based on early studies saw 25%-35% reduction in total energy spend on a facility-by-facility basis by optimizing how the facility runs.
