                                      utilities of this size, interacting with new data centers moving into a utility’s service territory
                                      can pose problems if the expectations of the data center and the utility are not aligned. This

                               With the addition of smart devices, utilities are tasked with managing more data than ever before.
                               This has increased demands to strengthen technical specifications and improve efficiencies in utilities’
                               own data centers. BC hydro is currently in the process of moving their data center to the BC interior
                               to a more stable seismic region in a CoLo type data center environment. This new data center is

                               purported to become the most energy efficient data center in Canada and is currently in the process
                               of being constructed. BC Hydro is currently conducting an engineering technical review of this data
                               centers' energy conservation measures and some are eligible for BC Hydro Power Smart incentives.

                                Additionally, the utility has also launched last year the first utility green IT energy conservation
                                program in the world and plans a new low-cost computing program for local schools.

                              For nearly 100 years, alternating current (AC) has been the base for our power distribution systems.
                              modern technology such as IT equipment, electronics, LED lighting etc., is increasingly based on
                              direct current (DC) technology. And renewable energy sources also generate power in DC. It is
                              therefore a natural progression to develop a DC-based power distribution topology, especially for
                              data centers. It is not only more energy-efficient but also more compact, more reliable and lower in
                              total cost. This presentation will discuss the DC-powered "grid-to-chip" architecture and the share
                              the experiences from a 840 kW DC-system recently installed in a Swiss colocation data center. It
                              concludes with the concept for a DC-powered micro grid.
