Every STACK-designed building is architected to meet basic design criteria for annualized PUE of 1.3 or lower and ASHRAE TC9.9 thermal guidelines. Integrated fan coil walls and free-cooling chillers also increase overall efficiency with near-zero overall water usage.
Sustainable Grid Mix
The power grid looks different in each of the major data center markets. We determine the optimal mix of renewable energy sources based on regional wind, solar, and hydropower availability. Our due diligence includes data-driven guidance on the alternative energy sources that best fit your location and mission.
As part of our mission to increase our renewable energy commitment, we work with local utilities and suppliers to pursue a thoughtful sustainability strategy both today and in the future.
The Case for Air-Cooled Data Centers
Why air-cooled chillers still make more sense (and cents) for hyperscale and growing data center facilities. Recent research suggests that pre-COVID data centers accounted for approximately 1% of the world’s electricity use, a number that’s surely...
FRP Replaces Secondary Steel & Lowers Embodied Carbon of Data Centers
Each year the world produces enough steel to build an Eiffel Tower every three minutes—that’s 180,000 Eiffel Towers per revolution of the sun—and while the Eiffel Tower is made of iron, not steel, it makes...
Shaping the Data Center Industry with Green Concrete
How green concrete can help the data center industry reduce environmental impact The Pyramids of Giza. The Great Wall of China. Trajan’s Market. What do these ancient structures have in common? They all used a...
Data Center Associations: A Clear, Consistent Voice
Industry associations play an important role in many sectors, but perhaps none more so than in the data center market. At a time when our work, capabilities, and requirements are increasingly recognized as fundamental to...
