Manchester DC provider reduces carbon output by over 500 tonnes a year

02 July 2021

Manchester data centre operator Teledata has reported a 551 tonne annual carbon saving following a £1.5m investment into energy efficiency projects.

Working closely with the Manchester Growth Hub, the Wythenshawe-based data centre operator has intelligently reduced carbon emissions in a range of area, including energy storage and cooling consumption.

In a project described as an industry first, the Wythenshawe colocation and cloud provider implemented a shipping container-sized battery storage system to enhance energy efficiencies at its facility. The system utilises a solution which enables the firm to store electricity from the national grid at times of low demand and then discharge it during the most beneficial periods.

"It is our mission to provide a sustainable and resilient service to our customers, mitigating against future cost increases to future proof in a turbulent marketplace, while reducing CO2 in line with government targets," Matt Edgley, director for Teledata.
