A typical Data Center (DC) consumes 41.11 TWh energy equivalent to ~12.13% of total energy generated in the UK (UKERC, 2020). During COVID-19, individuals and organisations are shifting towards the use of digital platforms which introduced more data traffic in the DCs, and hence, further increasing their corresponding energy consumption. The project aims to design a carbon-intelligent computing framework to reduce the energy-based carbon footprints and realise the goal of carbon neutral DCs. As carbon-neutral energy carries various uncertainties such as intermittency, therefore, the proposed research would determine and control these uncertainties, and optimize the energy consumption of DCs using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to operate on 100% carbon-neutral energy.
