As artificial intelligence (AI) data centers face increasing power demands, experts are considering alternative energy sources like small nuclear reactors to meet their needs. Tech giants like Microsoft and OpenAI are already investing in small modular reactor (SMR) technology, which could potentially power individual data centers and reduce reliance on the grid. Digital Realty CTO Chris Sharp told the BBC, "Our industry has to find another source of power."
