Microsoft understands that the increasing demand for its cloud services is leading to increasing demand for data centres, which require huge amounts of power to operate. They face an important challenge as a result, to scale their computing power whilst aligning with our common environmental objectives. According to BloombergNEF, Microsoft is currently the largest corporate purchaser of renewable energy in 2021. But they are not stopping here.

Microsoft will be a flagship customer of FlexiDAO’s 24/7 solution, which will enable Eneco customers including Microsoft to have access to FlexiDAO’s 24/7 renewable energy-matching tools at scale.


Microsoft has recently expanded on their pledge to have 100% renewable energy supply by 2025. They have committed to have 100% of its electricity consumption, 100% of the time, matched by zero carbon energy purchases by 2030 - also known as the 100/100/0 goal. To do, Microsoft need to know:

  • How to understand the initial hourly synchronicity? (% of hours during which Microsoft’s data center source zero carbon electricity)
  • How to certify the hourly match and avoid double counting of energy?
  • How to integrate the granular certificates into the official Energy Certificates and calculate hourly CO2 for reporting?


FlexiDAO’s software solution will match one of Microsoft’s Amsterdam datacenter’s hourly energy consumption with Eneco’s Dutch offshore wind.

  • FlexiDAO’s software calculated the 24/7 synchronicity score of its PPA by matching energy production data and energy consumption data
  • Granular hourly energy certificates were issued and registered on the blockchain to avoid double counting
  • Obtained all the energy certificates (Gos) needed to submit the yearly Scope 2 reporting
  • Calculated the location-based and market-based CO2 emissions hour-by-hour in line with the GHG Protocol


Thanks to Eneco and FlexiDAO’s integrated 24/7 solution, Microsoft will be able to:

  • Monitor and calculate the 24/7 synchronicity score of its CPPA supported by the claim of Granular Certificates (GCs) and guarantees of origin (GOs)
  • Obtain all the GOs needed to submit the yearly Scope 2 reporting
  • Calculate the location-based and market-based CO2 emissions hour-by-hour in line with the GHG Protocol Scope 2 guidelines

The learnings and outcomes of this project are constantly enabling more market participants to include 24/7 monitoring into their procurement strategies and Scope 2 reporting, incentivising adoption of 24/7 renewable energy matching at scale and fostering the decarbonization of local grids.
