Dublin, October 3, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Latin America Green Data Center Market: Industry Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027” Report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offering.
The market is expected to reach a value of $825 million in 2027, from $455 million in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 10.4%
The increasing digitization of the region, the previously neglected state, the shift to the cloud, the growing popularity of IoT and big data, the rise of 5G networks, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the demand for high-speed streaming of content from online entertainment are some of the main factors driving the growth of the Latin American data center market.
With the tremendous growth in data center deployment, the green data center market is becoming a leading trend in data center development and operations.
TRENDS AND DRIVERS OF THE GREEN DATA CENTER MARKET IN LATIN AMERICA
Innovations in power and cooling technology are driving the market for green development
Innovations in data center power technology include the adoption of lithium-ion and smart grid UPS systems and the adoption of DRUPS systems in Latin America.
Fuel cell-based power backup is also expected to enter the Latin American market in the long term, reducing investments in inefficient diesel generators and boosting the market for efficient products. A tropical testbed is currently in the testing phase in Singapore, making data centers more efficient in a tropical climate.
If successful, this can also have a positive impact on the Latin American market and further reduce installation PUE. Data center operators are also embracing free cooling at facilities in countries like Brazil, Chile, Argentina and the Caribbean, at least partially. For example, Equinix uses free cooling in its SP3 data center in Sao Paulo.
Government push towards sustainability
Several Latin American governments, including those of Chile, Brazil and Uruguay, are actively working to increase the adoption of renewable energy in the country. The Development Bank of Latin America approved a loan of $300 million to Uruguay to strengthen its electricity network and modernize it, promoted by the government.
Deployment of Modular Data Centers and Sustainable Material collecting steam
The cost of operating a modular data center is about 30% less than that of a traditional data center facility, making it an attractive proposition in Latin America and driving the growth of the modular data center market. Latin America, because many operators have limited funds. for data center development.
The environmental impact of deploying the modular data center is also lower, as it involves little or no use of concrete, can be built in a staggered fashion, and eliminates the need for additional labor.
Data center operators are also embracing plant-based and other sustainable materials such as wood, hemp and mycelium, which can revolutionize the data center construction process.
Among Latin American countries, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Paraguay are among the countries that have actively adopted renewable energy for the majority of their energy needs.
Countries like Mexico are also expected to increase their adoption of renewable energy in the coming years, especially due to global and regional policies that promote the use of renewable energy. In Mexico, just over 30% of the energy matrix is renewable.
In Argentina, around 26 large-scale renewable energy projects were commissioned in 2021, adding more than 1 GW of renewable energy. Power capacity increased by approximately 24% in 2021 compared to 2020.
Largest colocation and hyperscale data center operators drive the market
Hyperscale operators like Google and Microsoft are actively driving renewable energy adoption in Latin America. For example, in December 2021, Google launched its cloud region in Santiago, powered by solar energy from ACCIONA Energy’s El Romero photovoltaic plant.
Colocation operators such as ODATA and Scala Data Centers are active adopters of renewable energy in Latin America. For example, Scala Data Centers signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with ENGIE Brasil Energia in 2021 to supply more than 1,600 GWh of renewable energy to the operator until 2033.
Some of the leading producers and providers of renewable energy in the Latin American market include Enel Green Power, Engie, GreenYellow and The AES Corporation.
KEY ASPECTS OF THE INDUSTRY
Policy and regulatory drivers such as the Paris Agreement, RE100, and certifications such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and ISO50001 drive the green data center market development market in Latin America.
Significant contributors to the development of green data centers in Latin America include Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Paraguay, among others. Data center operators and governments are working to adopt renewable energy and other measures.
Hyperscale operators in Latin America, including Google, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and Huawei Technologies, are driving the market in terms of sustainable investment and innovative technologies.
