Future-proof your data centre with our energy procurement and optimisation expertise.
Data-driven, just like you.
Scientists first predicted that data would surpass oil as our global economy's most valuable commodity in the 1970s. Sure enough, the rapid development of information technologies began to define a new, undeniably digital era. From lifting whole communities out of poverty to sharing family photos with loved ones, the ability to seamlessly share data has proven indispensable to our daily lives.
Whether you manage an independent data storage facility or require colocation services, our team's proactive approach to data centre energy management can optimise uptime by identifying avoidable risks and opportunities to participate in Ofgem's latest green schemes and initiatives. In the UK alone, the digital sector is responsible for at least 8% of our entire GDP - and will be worth more than £6.5bn by 2025. This means that the smallest dip in your data centre's uptime can have catastrophic consequences to revenue and reputation.
Great power, even greater social responsibility.
Data centres can consume shocking amounts of not-so sustainable electricity. In fact, research suggests that these digital monoliths already account for approximately 2% of annual global energy consumption.
To offset these greenhouse gas emissions and meet our decarbonisation obligations, the UK offers a variety of financially rewarding opportunities. While energy sector regulations seem to evolve on an almost daily basis, our highly knowledgeable team of data centre management experts are here to guide your business through every transition.
If you already participate in specific green initiatives, including Ofgem’s highly profitable Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) Scheme or Feed-In Tariffs (FIT), the next few years may present many changes. Get in touch now to learn more and find out how we can help maintain your business’ competitive edge.
