As part of INAP’s overall data center design philosophy, reducing our carbon footprint is more than just a trend.
A reduced carbon footprint is not only good for the environment because it consumes fewer fossil fuels, reduces greenhouse emissions, minimizes the impact on land and provides a better working environment, but it helps our data center customers mitigate rising energy costs.Read More
We consider the environmental attributes of a locale when selecting our data center and colocation locations. Wherever possible, we design our green data centers with an eye toward best practices that maximize energy efficiency and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and natural resources.
INAP partners with power providers around the country who have made renewable energy their priority. By 2025, our goal is to energize our data centers with energy resources that maximize the reduction of carbon and leverage renewal energy.
Across our portfolio, INAP is replacing and upgrading its mechanical infrastructure with air economizers, variable-speed fans on cooling devices and a firm adoption of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) industry standards.
INAP best practices around energy management and sustainability are focused on reducing kilowatt usage on the electrical grids across the U.S in terms of multi-megawatts per year.
Efforts to economize the data centers unit-by-unit will translate into millions of dollars of annual cost savings that will be reinvested back into the data centers to further develop process and procedures and institute best practices on sustaining the viability of the data centers.
