Google installs an “ecological” backup battery system in Saint-Ghislain – Business

Google has set up its first ecological backup batteries for data centers in the center of Saint-Ghislain, in the Mons region, the company announced on Thursday. This system is entirely powered by green energies.

The installation makes it possible to supply the infrastructures even in the event of a power failure or during periods of lack of green energy. The reserve of electricity comes from the centre’s solar panels and wind turbines.

This system replaces the diesel generators initially planned to maintain power and therefore preserve internet connections as well as data accessibility.

The company wants to extend the system to data centers in other countries. Google wants to be completely dependent on carbon-free electricity by 2030.
