Keysource gains carbon trust data centres design advice (DCSDA) accreditation.

Keysource has been formally recognised by the Carbon Trust and awarded the Data Centres Strategic Design Advice (DCSDA) accreditation. This will enable the company to undertake work through the Carbon Trust to help data centre owners and operators to reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions as well as reduce energy costs. As the lead member of a consortium, they become one of only three companies in the UK to be accredited by the Carbon Trust for the provision of specialist data centre design and build services.

Keysource can now provide guidance and assistance on energy efficient, low carbon data centre solutions via the Carbon Trust Strategic Design Advice programme for data centres. The scheme was established in 2010 and is available to any organisation within the UK planning a new facility or looking to refurbish or carry out significant alterations to an existing data centre.

Mike West, Managing Director of Keysource commented: “At present, we are one of only a small handful of companies that possess the necessary expertise and capabilities to provide services under the DCSDA accreditation. This demonstrates our ability to design and create innovative data centre solutions that achieve high levels of efficiency in a cost effective and responsible manner.”

Following the accreditation process, Keysource was praised for its offering that was rated as exceptional against many of the required criteria. It was also recognised that the company was well placed for the successful delivery of DCSDA projects with a wide range of complementary data centre skills and expertise.
