  • Reporting
    • Water risk (now, 2030, 2040)
    • Carbon intensity (trends over time)
    • Grid renewables (trends over time)

 

  • CyrusOne Zero Water Consumption Cooling: No water is consumed to cool this facility (such as water towers or evaporative cooling).  Minimal amounts of water are used for humidification and facility maintenance. This facility uses highly efficient chillers, variable frequency drives, and energy-efficient CRAH units to achieve high efficiency air-cooled chilling.  An average US data center of the same size typically consumes over 1 million gallons of water per month to cool them.

 

  • Regional Water Risk: The Dallas area faces a medium-to-high risk of water supply disruption, which is expected to worsen to High Risk in the future.  Unlike many other data centers, CyrusOne’s Dallas – Carrollton facility does not use water for cooling and is therefore insulated from regional water risk, both current and future.
Water Risk and Use Now 2030 Projection 2040 Projection
Regional Water Risk Medium to high risk High risk (3-4) High risk (3-4)
CyrusOne Water Use Zero Consumption Zero Consumption Zero Consumption

(Risk assessment and projections based on WRI Aqueduct Tool)

 

  • Regional Grid Greenhouse Gasses: How much greenhouse gas does this facility’s local electrical grid emit while generating electricity?  (Useful for Location-based greenhouse gas reporting)
Greenhouse Gasses 2004 2007 2012 2016
Lbs CO2/MWh 1421.0 1252.6 1143.0 1009.2
  • The carbon-intensity of the grid has improved about 2.3% points per year over the last 12 years of published data. Reported by the US EPA eGRID for the ERCOT subregion (ERCT).

 

  • Regional Grid Renewables: What percentage of this facility’s local electrical grid is from renewable sources (wind, solar, biomass, hydro, and geothermal)?
Grid Renewables 2004 2007 2012 2016
Percent from renewable sources 1.3% 2.7% 8.6% 14.5%

This has been increasing about 1.1% points per year over the last 12 years of published data.  Based on US EPA eGRID data for the ERCOT subregion (ERCT).
