Bloomberg: AI’s Insatiable Need For Energy

June 27, 2024

In a recent Bloomberg article titled “AI is Already Wreaking Havoc on Global Power Systems,” DC Byte was prominently mentioned. The article delves into the rapid proliferation of artificial intelligence (AI) data centres and their significant impact on global energy consumption, posing challenges to power grids and clean energy objectives.

Bloomberg’s article underscores the pressing issue that the increasing number of AI data centres is driving electricity demand to new heights. This surge in demand is causing significant stress on power grids, which are struggling to keep up. Additionally, the heightened energy consumption is threatening global clean energy goals, as the reliance on fossil fuels to meet these demands could undermine efforts to transition to sustainable energy sources.
