In the United States alone, power consumption by data centers is expected to double by 2030, reaching 35GW (gigawatts), primarily due to the growing demand for AI technologies. This increase is largely driven by the deployment of AI-ready racks, which consume an excessive 40kW to 60kW (kilowatts) each due to their GPU-intensive processes.
