A large data centre is an industrial-scale operation using as much electricity as a small town.

The demand for data centres has increased substantially due to the rise of cloud services and the volume of data created on a daily basis worldwide.

The main priority of data centre operators is the security of their energy supply and back up generation. Pulse is a recognised market leader in data centre energy procurement in the UK and therefore an ideal partner.

Data Centres incorporate redundant or backup components and infrastructure for power supply, data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g. air conditioning, fire suppression) and various security devices.

Regional variations in energy costs can have a substantial impact on profitability (see the graph below). Pulse can provide initial financial modelling of energy costs to assist in deciding where to locate new data centres.

Our data centre energy procurement and management services cover:

  • Evaluation and advice on local network distribution charges
  • Contract negotiation and advice on supplier legal terms
  • Advice on EU and government schemes affecting energy usage at data centres including Climate Change Agreement (CCA) and European Union Emission & Trading Scheme (EU ETS)
  • Baseload Optimisation (see Baseload Optimisation Article for more details)
  • Risk Management strategies to ensure your energy costs are sustainable
