Ahead of the winter, Kao Data has published a new whitepaper to help data centre operators and end-users understand the current climate in the British energy market and to provide an outlook for the energy situation across the winter period.
As data centres rely on reliable power - we believe it is essential to reassure all businesses of the stability of the national electricity infrastructure and the contingency measures in place to keep British business dependent on data centre infrastructure, powered and connected.
Written by industry energy expert, Wayne Mitchell, the paper details what actually happened last year (amidst a frenzy of negative media attention predicting wide scale energy breakdown in the UK), the outlook for winter 2023/24 and how various geo-political issues are impacting energy prices and availability.
National Grid Electricity System Operator (NGESO) has also very recently published its important Winter Outlook for the 2023-2024 winter period which is included in the paper. The winter outlook details how the system operator will ensure the electricity transmission network remains balanced through the winter and how they will keep the lights on for homes and businesses.
