Revolutionizing Access to Renewable Energy: Exploring the Potential of the Newly-Launched Green Power Pass
Earlier this year, Iron Mountain launched a new data center renewable energy reporting solution called Green Power Pass – a first-of-its-kind industry-endorsed solution for companies seeking to report CO2 reductions associated with the green power they consume at Iron Mountain data centers. Green Power Pass is built on the foundation of the company’s 100 percent renewable energy colocation offering, a transparent accounting process, and the new carbon reporting protocol released by the Future of Internet Power (FoIP) working group.
For organizations focused on reducing their data-center energy impact, Green Power Pass can help demonstrate their commitment to, and fulfillment of, carbon reduction goals in line with initiatives such as RE100, Science Based Carbon Targets, and CDP reporting. In the past, the only option would have been to use complex third-party contracting processes to purchase offsets or renewable energy credits. Interestingly, the same FoIP carbon accounting mechanism can be used for any landlord-tenant relationship, thus opening new possibilities for managing data-center energy impacts.
