  • TomRaftery Tom Raftery, Lead analyst, energy and sustainability practice, RedMonk, blogger, podcaster, speaker at RedMonk Hi Mark,

    In the talk I didn't actually make any distinction between US cloud data centers and, as you say, 'regular' data centers.

    Having said that - coal accounts for 49% of electricity produced in the US, which while not the highest globally, is higher than the global average of 41% (http://www.worldcoal.org/coal/uses-of-coal/coal-electricity/).

    Hope that helps. Thanks for checking out the deck and for taking the trouble to leave your comment.
