CenturyLink to Power Data Center with Fuel Cells

CenturyLink will install Bloom Energy fuel cells to generate up to 500 kilowatts of clean, reliable power for one of its California data centers.

The fuel cells, expected to produce nearly 4.4 million kilowatt-hours of annual electricity, will help power cloud, managed hosting and colocation services housed within the data center, located in Irvine, California, and operated by Savvis, a CenturyLink company. The Bloom system will be fully operational in early to mid-2014.

“We must explore our energy alternatives to support advancements in technology and the escalating demand for network and IT infrastructure,” said David Meredith, senior vice president and global general manager for Savvis. “Bloom’s clean fuel cells offer a way for businesses like CenturyLink to promote the continuing evolution of technology without sacrificing their sustainability commitments.”
