PowerHouse Data Center’s Luke Kipfer is talking data center construction practices, powered shells and sustainability opportunities on the Inside Data Centre Podcast this week. The Vice President of Data Center Development and Constriction for PowerHouse and AREP spoke with Andy Davis, host of Inside Data Centre Podcast, about everything from the company’s full turnkey solutions to meeting hyperscaler demand for sustainable data center construction practices.
“What makes PowerHouse stand out is our speed to market offering,” said Kipfer. “With our experience as developers and understanding the market, we are able to get them to market faster. The one thing (hyperscalers and data center operators) can’t buy is time. We are putting in the effort and capital in the front end and getting construction and utility built ahead of time. We have the solution to those (timing) problems. We are able to deploy that compute capacity when they need it.”
Kipfer also highlighted how the company has approached the rising demand in sustainability.
“Sustainability is one of our pillars moving forward,” Kipfer said. “Hyperscalers drive market behavior. If we are looking to compete, we have to align what we are delivering with what they are looking for. They are looking for sustainable data center deployments. Hyperscalers are making very aggressive commitments to carbon neutrality and reducing their footprint. By aligning our design, construction and builds to meet that, we are delivering a product they can manage from a sustainable standpoint.”
