Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company, and Bloom Energy today announced a one megawatt (MW), biogas fuel cell project at its SV5 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center, located in Silicon Valley. The deployment of fuel cells supports Equinix’s long-term sustainability goal of using 100 percent clean and renewable energy across its global platform of more than 100 data centers.

Highlights / Key Facts

• The 1 MW Bloom Energy fuel cell will provide an estimated 8.3 million kilowatt-hours per year of clean, reliable electricity; powering a portion of the SV5 data center.
• The fuel cell uses a proprietary solid oxide technology to generate electricity through a clean electrochemical process using air and fuel and resulting in only water and a small amount of carbon dioxide as by-products.
• The installation utilizes no combustion and is associated with a 15 percent carbon dioxide reduction over the local PG&E grid or at least 1.6 million pounds of avoided CO2 emissions from the California grid and that is before the use of biogas.
• Using 100 percent biogas to fuel the system will result 1 MW of 100 percent renewable energy; biogas is methane gas captured from decomposing organic matter such as that from landfills or animal waste. By using biogas Equinix avoids the use of natural gas a fossil fuel.
• SOx (sulfur oxides), NOx (nitrogen oxides) and other harmful smog-forming particulate emissions are virtually eliminated with the use of Bloom Energy fuel cells, and because 1 MW of demand at a local gas or coal-fired power plant is avoided, fuel cells are also associated with significant indirect water savings.
• The project also includes uninterruptible power modules that are configured to protect a portion of the data center’s energy load from electrical outages, reducing reliance on traditional back-up equipment.
• Today, Equinix gets approximately 30 percent of its global energy from clean, renewable sources. Over time, Equinix plans to deliver on its long-term goal of using 100 percent clean and renewable energy by using a variety mechanisms including fuel cells or solar panels, power purchase agreements, utility renewable energy programs, renewable energy credits and carbon offsets.
