Latin America Green Data Center Market Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027 – Larger Colocation and Hyperscale Data Center Operators Driving the Market –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Latin America Green Data Center Market – Industry Outlook and Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to’s offering.

Market is expected to reach a value of $825 million in 2027, from $455 million in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 10.4%

The region’s increasing digitalization, previously underserved status, the shift to the cloud, the growing popularity of IoT and big data, the emergence of 5G networks, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the demand for high-speed streaming of online entertainment content are some of the major factors driving the growth of the Latin American data center market.

With the tremendous growth in data center deployment, the green data center market is becoming a leading trend in data center development and operations.


Innovations in Power and Cooling Technology are Driving the Market for Green Development

Innovations in data center power technology include the adoption of lithium-ion and smart grid UPS systems and the adoption of DRUPS systems in Latin America.

Fuel cells’-based power backup is also expected to make an entry into the Latin American market in the long term, driving down investments in inefficient diesel generators and driving the market for efficient products. A tropical test bed is currently in Singapore’s testing phase, making data centers more efficient in a tropical climate.

If successful, this can also positively impact the Latin American market and further bring down the PUE of facilities. Free cooling is also being adopted by data center operators in facilities in countries like Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and the Caribbean, at least partially. For instance, Equinix uses free cooling in its SP3 data center in Sao Paulo.

Government push toward Sustainability

Various Latin American governments, including those of Chile, Brazil, and Uruguay, are actively working towards increasing the adoption of renewable energy in the country. The Development Bank of Latin America has approved a loan of $300 million to Uruguay to strengthen its electricity grid and modernize it, driven by the government.

Deployment of Modular Data Centers and Sustainable Material gathering steam

The cost of operating a modular data center is around 30% less than that of a traditional data center facility, making it an attractive proposition in Latin America and driving the growth of the Latin America modular data center market, owing to many operators having limited funds for data center development.

The environmental impact of modular data center deployment is also lower since it entails lower or no usage of concrete can be constructed in a phased manner and eliminates the need for additional labor.

Plant-based and other sustainable materials such as wood, hemp, and Mycelium, which can revolutionize the construction process for data centers, are also being adopted by data center operators.


Among the Latin American countries, Brazil, Columbia, Argentina, and Paraguay are among the countries that have actively adopted renewable energy for most of their energy requirements.

Countries such as Mexico are also expected to ramp up their renewable energy adoption in the coming years, especially owing to worldwide and regional policies promoting the use of renewable energy. In Mexico, just over 30% of the energy mix is renewable.

In Argentina, around 26 large-scale renewable energy projects were commissioned in 2021, adding over 1GW of renewable energy. The energy capacity increased approximately 24% in 2021 compared with 2020.


Larger colocation and hyperscale data center operators driving the market

Hyperscale operators like Google and Microsoft actively drive renewable energy adoption in Latin America. For instance, in December 2021, Google launched its cloud region in Santiago, powered by solar energy procured from ACCIONA Energia’s El Romero photovoltaic plant.

Colocation operators such as ODATA and Scala Data Centers are active adopters of renewable energy in Latin America. For instance, Scala Data Centers signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with ENGIE Brasil Energia in 2021 to supply over 1,600 GWh of renewable energy to the operator until 2033.

Some major renewable energy producers and suppliers in the Latin American market include Enel Green Power, Engie, GreenYellow, and The AES Corporation.


Policy drivers and regulations such as The Paris Agreement, the RE100, and certifications such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and ISO50001 drive Latin America green data center market development market.

Significant contributors to green data center development in Latin America include Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Paraguay, among others. Data center operators and governments are working towards adopting renewable energy and other measures.

Hyperscale operators in Latin America, including Google, Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, and Huawei Technologies, are driving the market in terms of sustainable investment and innovative technologies.
