The data center debate on fuel cells
According to a report from CNET, Verizon is using hydrogen fuel cells for its primary power source at a Long Island data center. The report says Verizon spent $13 million to build the facility, and $300,000 in the first year to operate the system -- but the company actually saved $680,000 per year on the energy bill.
SearchDataCenter.com reported on hydrogen fuel cells as well. Some data center managers are hesitant to jump on board with the technology in an existing environment, but say it might be worth looking into for new construction.
