Paris, February twenty five, 2021,

Atos and HDF Electrical power currently announce their approach to develop a entire end-to-end very long-time period remedy to source datacenters with inexperienced hydrogen produced by renewable electrical power. The new remedy by Atos and HDF will be the initial obtainable on the industry for datacenters with significant ability consuming workloads, with the purpose to demonstrate, in 2023, a initial entire output center operated working with inexperienced hydrogen.

Atos will deliver a entire end-to-end inexperienced datacenter remedy by building and supplying the components, program and integration products and services that make it possible to exploit the electrical power created by inexperienced hydrogen so that it can be employed in datacenters. This incorporates working with the most advanced Synthetic Intelligence (AI) systems to improve electrical power intake. HDF Electrical power will source a ability plant, which will deliver predictable and firm electrical power thanks to its significant-powered fuel cells. These cells will be powered by inexperienced hydrogen derived from photovoltaic or wind farms.

A significant technological obstacle

Datacenters have significant electrical power desires, operate 24/seven, 365 days a year, and can not expertise the slightest electrical power flaw. Thus, the solution taken by Atos and HDF is particularly formidable, as by its quite nature, photo voltaic or wind electrical power is cleanse but intermittent, variable in its output and unpredictable, creating it an unstable electrical power.
At a time when datacenter electrical power intake is getting to be a critical situation and it is crucial to look at new electrical power types, this new remedy from Atos and HDF will empower datacenter operators and cloud operators to anticipate probable long term constraints set by regulation authorities and offer you a sustainable but reputable remedy to their clients, with no compromise on their organization.

Combining know-how to decrease the carbon footprint

Atos’ remedy incorporates a program layer to predict the datacenter’s ability intake desires and adapt the source (inexperienced hydrogen) appropriately. This sophisticated method is not only dependent on the datacenter’s activity and dimension but also normally takes into account external knowledge from the natural environment, these as climate forecasting. To this, Atos provides its HPC know-how – an spot in which it, as the major supercomputer manufacturer in Europe, has many groundbreaking innovations which restrict the electrical power intake of its units[1].

Thanks to its know-how in significant-ability hydrogen systems, HDF has formulated a new variety of ability plant which is fully stable, non-polluting and aggressive, compared to fossil fuel generators. The availability constraints of the datacenter will be incorporated in the structure of Renewstable® and will empower HDF to offer you the highest amount of service for the most demanding shoppers.

“We are consistently in search of to develop options to leverage our personal sustainable journey toward decarbonization and to assist our purchasers in theirs. In this perspective, the remedy to be formulated by Atos and HDF will be the initial remedy obtainable on the industry that will empower a entire output datacenter with quite demanding workloads to be operated working with inexperienced hydrogen. This fulfills the anticipations not only of operators, but also of the industry and general public authorities.” suggests Arnaud Bertrand, SVP, Head of Method and Innovation for Massive Facts & Security at Atos.

We are quite excited to develop the initial-of-its-sort inexperienced datacenter with Atos. HDF is a pioneer in hydrogen-electrical power and it is quite important for us to demonstrate that our Hydrogen-to-Power options are ideal for clients with a strategic want for a reputable electrical power source. This additional development into the digital field, where electrical power intake is expanding each day, opens up a sizeable around the world industry for us. The HDF-Atos partnership gives the initial exclusive and sustainable infrastructure for this substantial industry.” suggests Damien Havard, CEO at HDF.

This initiative signifies a new and significant milestone in Atos’ Net Zero 2028 decarbonization ambition. In 2020, Atos has presently accelerated its datacenter decarbonization software with encouraging development in electrical power effectiveness, which has materialized into a fifteen% reduce of international electrical power intake of Atos datacenters vs . 2019. In addition, carbon-free of charge and renewable electrical power now ability 55% of all of Atos datacenters (vs . 32% in 2019). In addition, considering the fact that 2014, Atos has been supplying carbon neutral hosting products and services to its purchasers by offsetting one hundred% of its datacenters’ emissions. Atos also recently signed the Local weather Neutral Datacenter Pact collectively with 35 other businesses and associations from throughout Europe, emphasizing the industry’s contribution to the ‘European Eco-friendly Deal’.


[1] This sort of as its patented Immediate Liquid Coolling (DLC)  solution, which minimizes international electrical power intake in its supercomputers by working with heat water up to 40°C and its Smart Electrical power Administration Suite, section of its HPC Software package Suite, which is employed to handle electrical power while optimizing overall performance, to be certain that clients’ HPC units are as electrical power economical as possible with a constrained carbon footprint.
