Data Centres and Wind Farms

 
 
EirGrid , Ireland's semi-state electricity grid operator has predicted a 21% increase in electricity demand over the next decade  “largely due to new data centres connecting”.

In its recent ‘all-island generation capacity statement’ , EirGrid estimates that 15% of all electricity demand in Ireland will come from data centres by 2026 as tech giants such as Amazon, Google , Facebook and Apple all establish data storage facilities here .

EirGrid’s report said there was currently 250 mega-volt amperes (MVA) of installed data centres in Ireland, but another 600 MVA in facilities were in the connection process and there were inquiries for more than 1,000 MVA of additional data centres .

EirGrid noted that this electricity will need to come from wind generation and renewable sources in order to meet EU targets  . Under EU Directive (2009/28/EC) , 16% of our energy must come from renewable sources by 2020 or face fines of up to €75 million per year .

 " The likelihood of meeting the targets for 2020 will depend largely on how much new wind and biomass can be built and accommodated on the system over the coming years " it stated . 

This presents a Dilemma for people in Rural Areas .  On one hand , they support the Data centre as they believe it brings jobs but on the other hand it will mean more Wind Farms for their community in order to power these centres going forward

If we take the proposed Apple Data centre in Athenry . It requires 240MW of power which is 6 - 8 % of the national grid .

Apple said that this would come from 100% renewable energy . 

This would require a wind farm 3 times the size of Mount Lucas in Offaly or 1.4 times the size of The Galway Wind Park in Cloosh Valley which are Ireland's largest Wind Farms . 

Mount Lucas Wind Farm in Offaly has 28 turbines and generates 84MW of energy (powering 45,000 homes a year) while The Galway Wind Park in Cloosh Valley has 58 turbines and generates 169MW of energy (powering 84,000 homes a year)

The Athenry Apple centre requires 240 MW , which is almost 3 times more power than Mount Lucas could provide and 1.4 times that of The Galway Wind Park . In total it would require the same amount of power as 128,000 homes . More than Galway or Dublin City .  

In terms of Jobs , while there are short term jobs in the construction of these centres, once operational they dont require much maintainance. 

For example , Amazon’s proposed Mulhuddart facility in Dublin is expected to employ only 30 people when completed even though its the size of three football pitches . 

Its all Food for Thought . Please Like and Share this article .

so basically , more data centres will mean more wind farms .

i dont think its worth it , I think we should be looking at better types of investments that will bring more jobs than data centres
#
the eirgrid report says that most of the extra power will be needed in Dublin

its not really fair on people outside of dublin that they will be stuck with lots of new wind farms just to power people in dublin
#
Exceptionally good article Mick! Thank You.

It is a crying shame that all this information was not available when the X-sheeple were running about blocking roads and zapping videos, texts & Tweets back and forth from their mobile phones, collectively consuming enough power during their protests worldwide, to provide electricity to Ireland for at least 5 years.

As for these Data centers, the proposed 90 permanent jobs will, I will take a guess, be dwindled down by 1/3 in the first few years. The end result will be NO DOUBT an eventual cost to the state and thus to the Tax payers.

Not to mention anything about the outside costs in ancillaries & maintenance that if not in the beginning, will eventually again be a cost to the state / Tax payer.

What Ireland needs and has always needed is state encouragement and incentives for Indigenous SME's and start ups!
#
Data centres are a waste of land and use up too much of our electricity , not enough jobs come out of them to justify the amount of space they use up .
#
very interesting . I Dont think people in wicklow realise that in order to power the new Echelon Data Centre they will have to have more wind farms . also , only 90 permanent jobs once operational . we need to be looking at better types of employment , data centres are not the answer
#
maybe we should be looking closer to home and invest in our own entrepreneurial talent , there are many irish owned companies who could bring jobs to places like athenry with the right investment from the IDA . no need for apple

the minute RTE news brought up the Eurogroup candidacy , I knew Paschal Donohoe would win, they knew from the start but wanted it to appear like a big victory , I hope someone in RTE will come forward and admit they knew at the beginning Donohoe would win and that it was all Propaganda from the beginning.

Harrowing week. Upset at the number of abortions and the gloating over it then having to read about the creepy Mr Tatchell and Minister O'Gorman. It's been black pilling. See you patriots at the protest. Thanks to John C, Tracey O, Gearoid M and all the 1%'ers. I'll have a 'Big Fella with glowing eyes' shirt I got from the Torino.

Exceptionally good article, Thank You Charlie. The big issue in Ireland is that FG has been both hijacked AND infiltrated by the Liberal Left. At the same time FF is currently being infiltrated, due mainly to the overwhelming desire of (now) Taoiseach Martin, who would literally sell his organs for one last chance at leadership!. Martin will be remembered ONLY, as the man who destroyed Fianna Fail. He has already caused a huge rift within the party, especially within Ogra FF. So

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! Bull. It is a great benifit to the paedophile rights peddlers, to be able to dismiss any & all comments as being nothing more than hate speech!. The whole hate speech / Anti-Free Speech Bill is designed to exclude without question any and all opposition, it's chief designers having been Varadkar & Co. The end and hoped for result is an ALL Left system, where FF & FG continue to pretend to be center Right, while at the same time slowly pushing ALL cen
