By Steve Davis 11 | January | 2016

Next Generation Data (NGD) today announced the appointment of npower Business Solutions as its new energy supplier and with this reaffirmed its leadership in sourcing all data centre power from 100 per cent renewable sources including wind, hydro and solar.

Since 2010 NGD has led the industry in sourcing all mains connected power (180 MVA) from renewables and in 2014 became the UK’s first data centre operator to receive a Climate Change Agreement (CCA) from the Government. Initiatives such as these allow customers to benefit from NGD’s exemption to carbon taxation and lower cost power, while also enabling the facility to further reduce carbon emissions.

David Reed, Head of npower Business Solutions, said, “We are delighted NGD has turned to us to ensure they maintain their industry leading track-record in green energy at this world-class data centre facility.”

“npower Business Solutions offered us a compelling long-term supply proposition and their appointment is in line with NGD’s ongoing environmental and energy efficiency goals,” added Nick Razey, CEO, NGD.

npower Business Solutions is a leading provider of renewable business energy and a supporter of renewable projects including new technologies from large scale off-shore wind farms to smaller hydro projects. For a technology reflective premium, npower can match the electricity businesses use with energy generated from renewable sources to support corporate targets. Its renewable power is generated from onshore and offshore wind, hydro and solar photo-voltaic sources.
