Rackspace Uses Biomass To Run Data Center

rackspacechips.jpgIT hosting company Rackspace has announced it has completed the conversion of a former warehouse into its new data center that will receive its power from renewable energy sources from the UK’s largest dedicated biomass energy plant. Operated by Scottish and Southern Energy, the plant is a combined heat and power plant that uses wood chips, waste paper and fiber fuel to generate electricity, hot water and steam.

The new Rackspace data center will provide 55,000-square-feet of net technical space and its first customers are scheduled to go live in June.

The European Commission recently said it would promote information and communications technologies to help cut EU energy use by 20 percent by 2020.
