European EV Platform Everon Rolls Into US in Partnership With Arcadia

Arcadia, a clean-energy access startup, is helping European electric-vehicle charging platform Everon make its first foray into the United States with a new partnership announced Friday. “In general, EV charging is hard for customers, especially when it comes to thinking about where to charge, how to pay for it and how to make sure you’re accessing as much clean energy as possible,” Arcadia CEO Kiran Bhatraju told GTM. “Using our platform and Everon’s tools to connect EV owners, their home chargers [and] their roaming all to a single bill, all to grid services — that is an extremely massive opportunity," Bhatraju said. Arcadia's existing customers will be able to use Everon's charging management software, along with Arcadia's billing management and access to renewables projects, to plan charging inside and outside the home.

DPO Signs Behind-the-Meter Wind PPA to Directly Power 100MW Green Data Center Project

PR Newswire | January 05, 2024

Digital Power Optimization, Inc. ("DPO") a developer and operator of green data centers announced the binding execution of a power purchase agreement with a major, multinational producer of renewable energy (the "Seller"). The Seller owns a number of large renewable power assets, including multiple 150MW+ wind farms in Texas. Under the new power purchase agreement, DPO and the Seller expect data center deployments to reach 100MW in total size and extend across as many as six of the Seller's Texas wind assets. Unlike most traditional computing facilities procuring clean power through virtual PPAs or offsets, DPO's data centers will draw power behind the meter, directly from the renewable wind generation facilities. Funding for the first phase buildout at the initial project site has been secured and data center operations are expected to begin in 2024, with the remaining sites coming online over the following 12-18 months. DPO's CEO, Andrew Webber, commented, "We're extremely pleased to have this PPA finalized and the project now officially underway. We have been running a pilot on-site for this power producer for over a year now and have developed an outstanding partnership with them. Together, we crafted a custom and innovative PPA structure which creates zero-cost economic upside for the Seller while bringing to life some of the cleanest and most sustainable computing facilities on Earth for DPO's investors and data center tenants." Since 2020, DPO has worked directly with power producers to utilize power-dense computing functions like Proof-of-Work network security and AI training as a more profitable physical offtake for undervalued power. DPO is the only company in the world to have developed and operated data center projects behind the meter on wind, solar, hydro, and natural gas plants, as well as grid-connected facilities. About Digital Power Optimization Digital Power Optimization is a leading developer and operator of green data centers for power-dense computing. DPO partners with utilities and IPPs to locate data center facilities on-site at power generation plants to directly utilize renewable energy for the operation of HPC/AI and Proof-of-Work computing. DPO is privately held.
