Kohler, Wis., Sept. 7, 2021 — Kohler Power, the data center industry’s global power partner, announces that it has been named to The Business Intelligence Group’s 2021 Sustainability Awards program, securing the Sustainability Product of the Year award. The Sustainability Awards honor people, teams and organizations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.
Kohler was named a Sustainability Product of the Year winner for its Kohler Tier 4 Final KD Series Generator, an industrial-grade, diesel-powered generator that provides backup power for large hyperscale and regional global data centers. As the amount of data being created increases, the number of worldwide data centers will grow to support that demand. With that comes the increased need for reliable backup power — and an increasingly acute demand for power solutions that reduce environmental impacts wherever possible.
Kohler’s Tier 4 Final KD Series Generator provides a key advantage over traditional systems, resulting in minimal maintenance demands for optimized continuity and maximized ease for users — all while meeting strict EPA-controlled sustainability requirements. The KD exhaust aftertreatment technology eliminates the need for diesel particulate filters and diesel oxidation catalysts, resulting only in the harmless exhaust byproducts of nitrogen and steam. Meanwhile, the KD series engine control units and integrated sensors continually monitor and control all elements of the exhaust aftertreatment system, delivering best-in-class emissions technology.
“As a company, Kohler has aggressive goals to be net zero by 2035. As a part of this journey, we recognize the significant role we play in helping data center operators achieve their sustainability goals,” says Melissa Reali-Elliott, Digital Marketing Manager, Data Centers for Kohler Power. “A shared commitment to making the world a better place through the development of innovative energy-saving products has spearheaded sustainable, robust solutions for evolving power demands. We look forward to these products being even more widely embraced as a means for organizations to decrease their carbon footprint and ultimately build a greener digital future.”
“We are proud to reward and recognize Kohler Power for their sustainability efforts,” says Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
