IT infrastructure supplier Atea has signed a 10-year PPA with Better Energy to offtake energy from a new solar project in Denmark. When connected to the grid later this year, the project is expected to deliver an additional 70GWh per year of renewable energy. The PPA will also allow Atea to offtake one-third of its energy consumption in Denmark. With a long-term agreement for green electricity in place, Atea can also focus on other sustainable practice initiatives, such as working with its partners to recycle and repurpose electronic devices.
Andreas Schjølin, sustainability manager at Atea, said: “By partnering with Better Energy, we will help contribute to creating more green electricity, rather than just purchasing the energy that already exists on the grid. “By directly procuring renewable energy through a PPA, companies can showcase their commitment to sustainability and environmental leadership. “It demonstrates a genuine effort to reduce carbon emissions and support the development of clean energy technologies.” Mikkel Thorup, director of PPAs at Better Energy, added: “Atea holds a prominent position in the IT industry, and we are excited to welcome them as a Better Energy partner. “Like many progressive IT and software companies, they are taking the important steps to ensure the energy they consume is green. “As we scale production of renewable energy, there will continue to be opportunities for innovative companies across all sectors to offtake clean electricity and participate in the green transition.”
