Data centres will continue to be sited in areas with the most advantageous
energy costs, with concomitantly reduced transmission losses.  If prices
for different sources change over time, new centers will be built in newly
advantaged regions.

It's like having cataloging outsourced to a specialist company instead of
performing it in house.
