AirTrunk & CLP Power to provide renewable energy solution for Microsoft in Hong Kong

AirTrunk and power utility CLP Power have announced a renewable energy solution in Hong Kong that will match Microsoft’s data centre electricity consumption with local renewable energy certificates (RECs).

The partnership will see AirTrunk source hourly RECs from CLP Power to provide renewable energy matching at its HKG1 data centre on behalf of its customer Microsoft. The solution will be linked to the West New Territories (WENT) Landfill Gas Power Generation Units of CLP Power – WE Station, a renewable energy project which makes use of gas produced at the landfill site for the generation of power and conversion of waste to energy.
