This paper presents a novel Data Center (DC) flexibility ecosystem, which aims to accelerate the commercial utilization of innovative energy efficiency solutions and on-site integration of renewable energy generation in DCs. The proposed ecosystem leverages on providing mutualized energy flexibility services to power and heat energy grids, while contributing to increased resiliency and security of the power supply.
