Acciona Energía signs 10-year PPA with Interxion

Acciona Energía will supply renewable electricity to cover the electricity consumption of the data centres that Interxion operates in Spain

Acciona Energia has signed a 10-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to supply 100% renewable energy to data centre operator Interxion in Spain.

The arrangement will see the Spanish renewables company supply more than 65 GWh per year to power Interxion’s three data centres in Spain. Also included in the agreement is the extra supply of power reserved for a new data centre that Interxion is building in Madrid and to cover for a demand increase by its campus in the Spanish capital.

The deal also aligns with the sustainability commitment of the data centre provider that only uses green energy in its operations.

Making data centre's more sustainable

With huge growth in connectivity and data exchange, it is essential to sustainably manage the high electricity consumption of data centre facilities and to implement strategies to minimise the environmental impact caused by their operation.

Acciona Energía will cover the supply through its renewable energy facilities in Spain, as part of its strategy to increase the volume of new supply contracts and medium and long-term PPAs for corporate customers, as older assets reach the end of their regulatory lifespan.

With this agreement, Acciona Energía consolidates its position as a key partner for Interxion's sustainability strategies. Thanks to the use of 100% green energy certified at source, Interxion avoids the emission of 8,000 tons of CO2 per year.

As part of its sustainable strategy, Interxion has joined the Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact. The aim of this agreement is to make data centres climate neutral by 2030, and it sets the main pillars to achieve it: renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy reuse, circular economy, and water conservation.
