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 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:
FlexiDAO’s software solution will match one of Microsoft’s Amsterdam datacenter’s hourly energy consumption with Eneco’s Dutch offshore wind.
Thanks to Eneco and FlexiDAO’s integrated 24/7 solution, Microsoft will be able to:
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.
Have all the information you need on energy origin and emissions in one place. Accurate data that can be refreshed monthly, or hourly, to ensure quick & accurate energy decisions and reports.
