Microgrids Boost Renewable Energy Roll-Out
It seems every journal I open gives at least a mention to microgrids. Whether in the context of renewable energy, resiliency, or infrastructure, microgrids are hailed as being the solution to our ...
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in Data Centers
Since we’re in the digital mood today, here’s a less-than-140-character introduction to computational fluid dynamics (CFD): CFD takes a very complex fluid dynamics problem and breaks it up into tiny ...
Data Center Energy Consumption
The digital revolution is here, and data is taking over. Human existence is being condensed, chronicled, and calculated, one bit at a time, in our servers and tapes. From several perspectives this is ...
The Decreasing Cost of Solar Photovoltaic Systems
