That conclusion was featured in reports published by research organization HIVOS. The research focused solely on the use of green energy. All our locations use 100% green energy. But we don’t stop there.
IT-equipment is responsible for no less than 8% of the annual energy consumption in the Netherlands. At Cellnex, we constantly try to save as much energy as possible in our datacenters. Partly because of the height of our telecom & data towers, we can use energy-saving cooling methods: direct free air cooling and water cooling. These cooling methods are known for their exceptionally low electricity use. With a PUE of 1.2, Cellnex’s datacenters are very energy efficient, which also leads to a lower energy bill.
Cellnex keeps investing in a better environment and the development of smart and sustainable solutions. This is one of the reasons why we are a partner in Green IT Amsterdam, a platform consisting of over 50 parties that promotes a strong local datacenter industry that invests in green solutions.
The video below gives you a look behind the scenes: the construction of one of the greenest datacenters.
