data ServersCenturyLink Inc. has selected Bloom Energy fuel-cell servers to power an Irvine, Calif. data center run by CenturyLink subsidiary Savvis.

Bloom Energy’s technology works to generate roughly 4.4 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year and help the Savvis facility cut nearly 1 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per year, CenturyLink said Monday.

“We must explore our energy alternatives to support advancements in technology and the escalating demand for network and IT infrastructure,” said David Meredith, Savvis senior vice president and global general manager.

Peter Gross, Bloom Energy vice president of mission critical systems, said the company aims to help customers fulfill their corporate sustainability goals.

The Savvis data center will use the technology to support cloud, managed hosting and colocation services and protect essential workloads in the event of an electrical outage.
