Paris, February twenty five, 2021,
Atos and HDF Energy right now announce their system to produce a finish conclusion-to-conclusion prolonged-term answer to provide datacenters with environmentally friendly hydrogen created by renewable power. The new answer by Atos and HDF will be the to start with out there on the sector for datacenters with major ability consuming workloads, with the goal to reveal, in 2023, a to start with total creation centre operated making use of environmentally friendly hydrogen.
Atos will supply a finish conclusion-to-conclusion environmentally friendly datacenter answer by designing and providing the components, program and integration companies that make it feasible to exploit the energy manufactured by environmentally friendly hydrogen so that it can be made use of in datacenters. This contains making use of the most advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems to optimize power consumption. HDF Energy will provide a ability plant, which will supply predictable and business energy thanks to its substantial-driven gasoline cells. These cells will be driven by environmentally friendly hydrogen derived from photovoltaic or wind farms.
A important technological problem
Datacenters have substantial power demands, work 24/7, 365 times a 12 months, and cannot expertise the slightest power flaw. As a result, the approach taken by Atos and HDF is significantly bold, as by its extremely mother nature, solar or wind power is thoroughly clean but intermittent, variable in its creation and unpredictable, earning it an unstable power.
At a time when datacenter power consumption is getting to be a important issue and it is necessary to consider new power versions, this new answer from Atos and HDF will empower datacenter operators and cloud operators to anticipate possible long term constraints set by regulation authorities and offer a sustainable but dependable answer to their shoppers, with no compromise on their organization.
Combining know-how to decrease the carbon footprint
Atos’ answer contains a program layer to forecast the datacenter’s ability consumption demands and adapt the resource (environmentally friendly hydrogen) accordingly. This elaborate method is not only based mostly on the datacenter’s action and sizing but also will take into account exterior facts from the environment, these as temperature forecasting. To this, Atos delivers its HPC know-how – an space in which it, as the main supercomputer manufacturer in Europe, has several groundbreaking improvements which limit the power consumption of its programs[one].
Thanks to its know-how in substantial-ability hydrogen systems, HDF has designed a new sort of ability plant which is entirely steady, non-polluting and competitive, as opposed to fossil gasoline generators. The availability constraints of the datacenter will be included in the design of Renewstable® and will empower HDF to offer the highest level of support for the most demanding customers.
“We are continuously seeking to produce methods to leverage our individual sustainable journey in the direction of decarbonization and to assist our clients in theirs. In this standpoint, the answer to be designed by Atos and HDF will be the to start with answer out there on the sector that will empower a total creation datacenter with extremely demanding workloads to be operated making use of environmentally friendly hydrogen. This fulfills the anticipations not only of operators, but also of the sector and community authorities.” says Arnaud Bertrand, SVP, Head of Technique and Innovation for Major Facts & Stability at Atos.
“We are extremely excited to produce the to start with-of-its-kind environmentally friendly datacenter with Atos. HDF is a pioneer in hydrogen-power and it is extremely essential for us to reveal that our Hydrogen-to-Electric power methods are ideal for shoppers with a strategic require for a dependable energy provide. This additional growth into the electronic field, the place power consumption is increasing every single day, opens up a appreciable all over the world sector for us. The HDF-Atos partnership gives the to start with one of a kind and sustainable infrastructure for this huge sector.” says Damien Havard, CEO at HDF.
This initiative signifies a new and important milestone in Atos’ Net Zero 2028 decarbonization ambition. In 2020, Atos has by now accelerated its datacenter decarbonization software with encouraging progress in power effectiveness, which has materialized into a fifteen% decrease of global power consumption of Atos datacenters compared to 2019. In addition, carbon-free of charge and renewable power now ability 55% of all of Atos datacenters (compared to 32% in 2019). On top of that, because 2014, Atos has been providing carbon neutral hosting companies to its clients by offsetting one hundred% of its datacenters’ emissions. Atos also lately signed the Local climate Neutral Datacenter Pact alongside one another with 35 other corporations and associations from across Europe, emphasizing the industry’s contribution to the ‘European Inexperienced Deal’.
[one] This kind of as its patented Immediate Liquid Coolling (DLC) solution, which minimizes global power consumption in its supercomputers by making use of warm h2o up to 40°C and its Smart Energy Administration Suite, part of its HPC Software program Suite, which is made use of to take care of power while optimizing overall performance, to make certain that clients’ HPC programs are as power effective as feasible with a constrained carbon footprint.
Atos is a global leader in electronic transformation with 105,000 workers and once-a-year profits of in excess of € eleven billion. European amount one in cybersecurity, cloud and substantial-overall performance computing, the Group gives tailored conclusion-to-conclusion methods for all industries in 71 international locations. A pioneer in decarbonization companies and solutions, Atos is dedicated to a safe and decarbonized electronic for its clients. Atos operates under the models Atos and Atos|Syntel. Atos is a SE (Societas Europaea), outlined on the CAC40 Paris stock index.
The goal of Atos is to support design the long term of the information place. Its know-how and companies assist the growth of awareness, education and investigate in a multicultural approach and lead to the growth of scientific and technological excellence. Throughout the entire world, the Group enables its shoppers and workers, and users of societies at substantial to live, do the job and produce sustainably, in a safe and sound and safe information place.

HDF Energy is a global pioneer in hydrogen power. HDF develops and operates substantial-capability Hydrogen-to-Electric power ability crops to supply constant or on-need energy from renewable energies put together with substantial-ability gasoline cells.
HDF has designed two versions of multi-megawatt ability crops:
- Renewstable® (Electric power TO Electric power): steady energy technology from an intermittent renewable source making use of locally manufactured environmentally friendly hydrogen.
- Hypower® (Gasoline TO Electric power): On-need ability technology from environmentally friendly hydrogen from gasoline transportation networks.
HDF has integrated its important gasoline cell know-how in and will commission the world’s to start with mass creation plant for these substantial-ability gasoline cells in France, under the brand identify HDF Business. In addition to power, HDF Business will also handle the rail and maritime marketplaces. HDF is consequently positioned as a strong accelerator in power transition by providing non-intermittent renewable energy, beautifully adapted to the networks and on-need, which can get to up to one hundred% of the power mix.
