Case study interview with Kevin Hagan of Iron Mountain
The global explosion in Internet and cloud based services comes with a big climate price – the data centers that run these services are growing exponentially and now are estimated to contribute 7% of global carbon emissions. Leading companies are trying to change the story – what if instead of more climate pollution from dirty energy sources, data center users – all the corporations that use cloud and 3rd party data centers could be part of the clean energy revolution? Can they use their purchasing clout to help make a greener, more equitable and more cost effective grid for everyone?
