Cryptocurrency mining, which may be curtailed or taken offline in periods of low supply or peak demand, presents an ideal counterpart for renewables. To activate this potential, Compute North has entered into demand response programs with select energy partners, which enables the ability to be rapidly curtailed and dispatch power to mission-critical customers, such as hospitals.
“We’re proud that Compute North’s focus on sustainable mining solutions factored into NBTC’s decision to partner with us for its upcoming U.S. deployment,” said Dave Perrill, CEO at Compute North. “Because of the unique and important relationship between our data centers and power providers, the process of mining has demonstrated the ability to provide added benefit to the energy ecosystem across the U.S., in addition to supporting the ongoing health of a truly transformative technology and digital asset class.”
