Google has announced it will team with a startup company to develop a geothermal power system in Nevada to serve its regional data centers. Google CEO Sundar Pichai told an annual developer conference on Tuesday that the partnership with Fervo should begin supplying electricity next year, serving the company’s Cloud region in Las Vegas. Governor’s Office of Energy Director David Bobzien told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Nevada has plentiful geothermal resources to power the state’s clean energy economy. Google last year said it plans to use always-on carbon-free energy at its data centers and campuses worldwide by 2030.
