The transition to renewable energy is a crucial part of the globe's move to net-zero emissions, and the data center sector is playing its part.

But any initiative has to work within certain immutable laws. These include the rules of the financial markets, the regulations imposed by government and, underneath all the rest of these rules, the basic laws of physics. It's scientific laws that made it clear that this transitional journey was necessary in the first place. Too much CO2 in the atmosphere equals too much global heating.

So, we make no apology that this Grid and Energy supplement is all about rules. It's often been observed that limitations and restrictions can actually drive the most creative actions - and we hope that's true for the world.
