STT GDC partners with Avaada


ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (India) (STT GDC India) on March 3 announced a partnership with Avaada MHKhamgaon, a subsidiary of Avaada Energy, to procure 99MUs/annum (99 Million kWh) of renewable energy under a captive structure.

The 99MUs would cater to the company’s facilities in Maharashtra, according to a press release.

As part of its sustainability initiatives, 34 pc of power for all STT GDC India’s facilities comes from renewable sources, making it one of the largest users of renewable sources among data centre operators in the country, said the release.

The partnership with Avaada Energy along with all the existing sustainability initiatives, will lead to an annual reduction of 4,56,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions by 2025. This is equivalent to reducing carbon emissions by removing more than 90,000 passenger vehicles from India’s roads in a year, added the release.
