Japan: NEC to expand its green data centers in Kanagawa and Kobe

Sep 23, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

NEC Corporation has announced that it is establishing two new green data centers, in response to the growing demand. The first is the "NEC Kanagawa Data Center: Phase 2 Building" which is scheduled to open in the second half of 2023, and the second is "NEC Kobe Data Center: Phase 3 Building," which is slated to begin operations in the first half of 2024.

The facilities will run on 100% renewable energy, which aligns with the company's goal for 2030 to reduce greenhouse gas by 55% compared to 2017 - a target which has been validated at the SBT 1.5°C level from the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

According to the company, the renewable energy it utilizes for operations will be a combination of self-generated electricity from solar power sources, a green power certificate, and a non-fossil certificate with tracking.
