Data center growth in Virginia is causing a huge spike in energy demand, which is currently being met by huge fracked gas generation build-out in Virginia and the Southeast United States. Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) — the first grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated exclusively to fighting global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. — is working to educate Virginians on data center issues and CCAN Action Fund is working to advance common sense policies to ensure data center energy demand is met with clean energy.
