Jan 28, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

DEAC has announced that it is teaming up with Neste, a producer of renewable diesel, helping the company to reach its goal of using 100% renewable energy by "as early as 2022." According to the company, it will enhance the sustainability of its data storage during potential power cuts. 

Andris Gailitis, the CEO of DEAC, says that while the company already uses 100% renewable electricity from wind farms for its day-to-day data storage, this partnership will enable its diesel generators to "sustainably protect data in emergency situations."

Heidi Peltonen, responsible for sustainable partnerships in Marketing & Services, Neste commented: "We are pleased that global data centers, the backbone of the digital world, follow more resource-intensive industries in search of solutions for a more sustainable future. Cooperation with DEAC marks Neste's first time partnering with a data center to provide it a solution - Neste MY Renewable Diesel - that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%* compared to fossil diesel use."
