A Digital Realty Company and carrier- and cloud-neutral colocation data center solutions provider can now offer EkkoSense data center energy optimization services in the EMEA region. In February of last year, Interxion made an initial project with EkkoSense to reduce cooling system energy consumption at its West Drayton, London site.
20% reduction in cooling system energy usage
Interxion could secure a 20% reduction in cooling system energy usage and contribution towards its broader carbon reduction targets with EkkoSense’s optimization solution. Since Digital Realty announced its commitment to reduce corporate CO2 emissions across its entire portfolio, the organization has made various announcements solidifying this commitment, including the establishment of a sizeable solar and wind power purchase agreement. Dean Boyle, CEO, EkkoSense, said,
“We’ve already had considerable success in reducing cooling system energy consumption for both Interxion in Europe and Digital Realty in the US, and we’re really looking forward to unlocking further savings for Interxion enterprise customers across EMEA.
At EkkoSense we have already helped our clients to reduce their cooling power carbon emissions by around ten thousand tonnes of CO2, and we’re adding to that total daily. Interxion’s new initiative will present its enterprise customers with a win/win proposition: reducing their cooling energy usage by between 20-30%, presenting them with a clear carbon saving that will support their net-zero emissions programs, and also delivering a net cut in their overall data center cooling energy spending.”
