Green power is the sustainable supply of energy that caters to the requirements of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Many technologies including renewable energy sources such as solar energy, hydroelectricity, wave power, wind energy, tidal power, and geothermal energy promote sustainable energy, and thus improve energy efficiency.
Recently, Datapipe (News - Alert), a provider of managed services and infrastructure for outsourced IT and cloud computing, increased its ranking to No. 8 on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Top 20 Tech & Telecom list of the largest green power users.
According to the company, this ranking reflects Datapipe’s undeterred commitment to safeguard the environment by improving its existing partnership with EPA’s Green Power Partnership.
The company is making use of more than 74 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power every year. This green power has the ability to meet 100 percent of the organization’s electricity use, the company has stated.
“In 2010, Datapipe initiated the use of 100 percent green power in a single data center facility, with an annual reduction of 8.5 million pounds of carbon emissions,” said Robb Allen, CEO, Datapipe. “Today, all of our U.S. facilities utilize sustainable electricity, with a total annual reduction of over 112 million pounds of carbon emissions – equivalent to the annual electricity use of over 6,300 homes. Datapipe is committed to the continued support of long-term sustainability.”
Recently, the company became an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) as an Advanced Consulting Partner. The AWS Partner Network (APN) is a new worldwide program that provides partners the technical information and sales and marketing support they need to enhance their business on AWS. APN Technology Partners are commercial software and Internet services companies that provide solutions that run on or are complementary to AWS.
