Latin America Green Data Center Industry Outlook Report 2023: Market to Grow by $650 Million by 2028 - Deployment of Modular Data Centers and Sustainable Materials Gathering Steam

Dublin, Jan. 16, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Latin America Green Data Center Market - Industry Outlook & Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The Latin America green data center market is expected to attain a value of $1.64 billion by 2028, up from $890 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 10.75% from 2022-2028.

Among Latin American countries, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Columbia, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay have actively adopted renewable energy for most of their energy requirements. The Mexican government plans to produce 35% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2024. This objective is part of the efforts to reduce the country's reliance on fossil fuels and to enhance the stability of the electric grid by minimizing the occurrence of power interruptions.

Hyperscale operators such as Google and Microsoft are actively driving renewable energy adoption in Latin America. For instance, in January 2022, Microsoft announced plans to develop a cloud region in Chile at an investment of over $315 million. The cloud region will be powered by 100% renewable energy.


Innovations Data Center Cooling and Power Technologies Are Driving the Market for Green Development

  • In Latin America, innovations in data center power technology include the adoption of lithium-ion and smart grid UPS systems and DRUPS systems.
  • Fuel cell-based power backup is also expected to enter the Latin American market in the long term, driving down investments in inefficient diesel generators and the market for efficiencies.
  • Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) Fuel is among the emerging trends concept in the data center market. However, data center operators in Latin America didn't adopt this technology. Still, there is the development from some of the oil companies involved in the development of the HVO fuel stations, wherein it is witnessed that during the forecast period, at least some operators will introduce HVO in their data center facilities.
  • A tropical test bed is currently in the testing phase in Singapore to make data centers more efficient in a tropical climate. If successful, this can also positively impact the Latin American market and bring down the PUE of facilities further.
  • Free cooling is also being adopted by data center operators in facilities in countries like Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and the Caribbean, at least partially. For instance, Equinix uses free cooling in its SP3 data center in Sao Paulo.

Government Push Toward Sustainability

  • Various Latin American governments, including those of Chile, Brazil, and Uruguay, are actively working toward increasing the adoption of renewable energy in the country.
  • The Development Bank of Latin America has approved a loan of USD 300 million to Uruguay to strengthen its electricity grid and modernize it, driven by the government.

Deployment of Modular Data Centers and Sustainable Materials Gathering Steam

  • In Latin America, many operators have limited funds for data center development, making it an attractive proposition for deploying modular data centers. Some of the companies in Latin America are involved in investing in the development of Modular facilities. The cost of operating a modular data center is around 30% less than that of a traditional data center facility.
  • The environmental impact of modular data center deployment is also lower since it entails lower or no usage of concrete and can be constructed in a phased manner, eliminating the need for additional labor.
  • Plant-based and other sustainable materials such as wood, hemp, and Mycelium, which can revolutionize the construction process for data centers, are also being adopted by data center operators.
