London, UK, 16 November 2011 - Sentrum, (www.sentrum.com), a specialist in data centre solutions, has today reinforced its commitment towards identifying a greener way of working by signing up to a new services contract that will see 100% Renewable Levy Exempt Power being supplied to its portfolio of data centres in the UK.
The agreement will mean that Sentrum’s power needs will now be met through a variety of accredited renewable technologies including, wind, solar, tidal, wave or biomass.
“As our latest research into the UK data centre market shows, companies are increasingly turning to data centre operators to help them reduce their carbon footprints,” said Scott Goodwin, Group Energy Officer at Sentrum. “This decision, to review the methods by which our energy is supplied, is an important step forward and makes good business sense for everyone.”
The research also found that whilst 75% of companies have received advice on PUE not all have followed it completely, if at all – in fact just 25% cited that they had followed the advice given to the letter. “We hope that the fact that this renewable sourced electricity, which also allows us to manage our Climate Change Levy (CCL) obligations, will in turn positively impact the PUE efficiency targets that Sentrum is set to achieve for itself and its customers,” Goodwin concluded.
