Harrison Resource Corp. says that Weld County Commissioners have unanimously approved the company's plans for the development of Niobrara Energy Park, a 640-acre project that will integrate renewable energy and natural-gas facilities with data centers and energy research.

Niobrara Energy Park, to be located in Weld County, Colo., will use on- and off-site renewable energy and natural gas. The park will have a research facility for scientists, engineers, institutions and others to research energy systems integration, renewable energy, the smart grid and energy storage. The proposal also includes plans for a 200-acre solar farm, a data center, a gas-gathering and processing facility, and a gas-fired electric power plant.

“By combining alternative energy generation and a new natural gas firming power plant, you can level the flow of all of these energy sources,” says Craig Harrison, president of Harrison Resource. “With the redundant alternative and clean fossil electricity, along with the connection to the adjoining national fiber highway, this is the ideal site for a mega data center of national importance."
