January 4, 2013
London, UK-based colocation and data center services provider London Data Exchange now uses 100% renewable energy. The electricity powering the company's 22,000 square foot LDeX1 data center in the north-west of London is now generated using 100% renewable energy sources, and its colocation services for servers and telecommunications equipment entirely carbon neutral.
The move is part of a policy to move the company's datacenters towards utilizing 100% renewable energy, and was achieved in LDeX1’s first year of operation. As part of its environmental efforts, London Data Exchange has also achieved ISO50001 - an internationally recognized energy management standard which recognizes responsible energy management within organizations.
“Switching to 100% renewable energy is the latest in a string of environmentally responsible initiatives undertaken at LDeX to reduce our environmental impact," explained the CEO of LDeX, Robin Garbutt. "Using 100% renewable energy ensures that we receive all our energy from 100% renewable energy sources and the ISO50001 guidelines guarantee that we maximize all energy sourced, minimizing wastage and any resulting unnecessary CO2 emissions.”
