Vodafone Romania’s data centers reached monthly energy savings that equal the consumption of over 350 dwellings
Vodafone Romania reached energy savings of around 50MWh per month in its main data centers, the energy consumption equivalent of over 350 Romanian dwellings over the same period. The result comes seven months after the installation of advanced cooling technologies in Vodafone’s main data rooms as part of a multi-year investment program aimed at increasing the energy efficiency of the company, while reducing its environmental impact, the company announced.
“We keep our commitment to use 100% Green Energy for our operations and to become Carbon neutral by 2040. Achieving 350 MWh energy saving in our main data centers in just seven months’ time is an important milestone for us, following other successful innovations previously implemented on our mobile sites,” said Catalin Buliga, Technology Director Vodafone Romania.
Data centers are heavy energy consumers, mostly because of the cooling systems required to ensure proper operating temperature for the electronic equipment. Cooling systems are responsible for 40-50% of the total energy consumed by any data room.
