  • In February 2022, China Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) and Chinese marine firm Offshore Oil Engineering Company announced that they began the construction of an underwater data center in China. The facility will be cooled using seawater.
  • Keppel Data Centres partnered with Toll Group to develop a floating data center in Singapore based on modular data center designs that can be scaled based on demand. Keppel will likely consider deploying the floating data center solution of Nautilus Data Technologies.

Government Push Toward Sustainability

  • Various APAC governments, including those of China, Australia, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and others, actively work toward increasing the adoption of renewable energy.
  • According to the State for Chemical and Fertilizers, New Renewable Energy in India aims to produce 450 MW of renewable energy by 2030. Four solar power plants will be set up in Karnataka, with a combined power capacity of around 1,200 MW.
  • Thailand 4.0 aims to implement innovative energy initiatives for economic development. Under the policy, over $6 billion is invested by the state-owned enterprises on smart grids before 2036 to improve the grid's resilience and efficiency, leading to less carbon emissions.


Innovations In Power Technologies

  • In 2022, NTILION's scalebloc provided a cutting-edge lithium-ion battery solution, revolutionizing stationary energy storage for data centers. Its small, all-in-one design offers various applications, weather-resistant housing, and sophisticated system control for efficient and safe interior or outdoor installation.
  • In October 2023, Equinix and the National University of Singapore are working on a research project to study the possibility of hydrogen fuel cells as an alternative power source for Singapore data centers.
  • In 2022, Equinix partnered with ZutaCore, Virtual Power Systems (VPS), Bloom Energy, and Natron to test cutting-edge technologies under Equinix's Data Center of the Future initiative. The technologies explored include generator-less and UPS-less data centers, among other technologies.

Innovations In Cooling Technologies

  • Data centers installed underwater are gaining traction. In February 2022, China Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC) and Chinese marine firm Offshore Oil Engineering Company announced that they began the construction of an underwater data center in China. The facility will be cooled using seawater.
  • In China, Foxconn has constructed a 'green tunnel-like data center' in Guiyang, southwestern China. According to Foxconn, the facility's design criteria are based on minimizing energy consumption, with an average PUE (power usage effectiveness) of less than 1.1.

The Rise in Renewable Energy PPAs by Data Center Operators

  • In the APAC green data center market, Hyperscale operators have entered into power purchase agreements with renewable energy providers to supply power to their data centers.
  • In 2023, Google has secured 20 additional renewable energy agreements, expanding the total number of agreements to over 80, with a combined capacity of 10 GW - a $10 billion visionary commitment in clean energy procurement by 2040.
  • In 2023, Alibaba Cloud and Shell collaborated to provide innovative cooling solutions. The alliance will use Shell's low-carbon energy products and immersion cooling fluids in data centers to decarbonize Alibaba's infrastructure.
