Mission Critical Power for Data Centres

Delivering on-site power you can rely on within your timeframes

The shift from centralised energy production to reliable local distributed energy generation is enabling data centres to keep control and reduce costs, while strengthening operational resilience. By using onsite gas generation to produce reliable high efficiency power supply, data centres can combat the increasing risk of grid-constraints, flexible MIC, supply disruption and price volatility, thus ensuring business continuity and improving competitiveness.

Proven capabilities

We manage 600GW of power and are market leaders in distributed energy – partnering with mission critical businesses and organisations across all sectors globally, including one in four of the FTSE 100. Our sister company Bord Gáis Energy supplies many Irish data centres with cost effective and sustainable uninterrupted power solutions. Our recent acquisition of CES Energy in Ireland is extending our capabilities.

Complete project management

From designing and building energy critical facilities, to project planning and grid connection – through to optimising operation and maintenance - we offer complete lifetime project support. Our in-house capabilities mean that we can deliver competitive solutions to the tightest build programmes.

Modular microgrids that grow with your power needs

Rapid digitisation of the economy, including the advent of 5G, is driving growing data centre power demand, which is expected to increase by more than 300% over the next 5 years. Centrica's modular onsite generation technologies provide cost effective, future proofed solutions that overcome the problem of tight grid capacity.

We keep the power on 24/7, integrating renewable technologies, heat recovery and renewable gas with our high and medium speed gas generators and turbines. This provides the continuous steady and stable power supply that data centres rely on, while also allowing the data centre to grow without having to wait for power from the grid. Onsite gas generation can also assist with regard to flexible and dynamic grid supply.

Flexible finance

While we can design, build and maintain your investment in onsite generation, we also provide a suite of flexible finance options, including Energy Performance Contracts, short term rentals and fully financed long-term solutions – all supported with comprehensive maintenance.
