Iron Mountain Incorporated, storage, and information technology services provider reported today that it has taken a major step forward in the creation of improved technologies for buying renewable energy across easily accessible retail outlets by entering into an arrangement with RPD Energy and Direct Energy to monitor the hourly renewable energy load of Iron Mountain data centers.

RPD Energy and Direct Energy will provide Iron Mountain with a monthly report detailing the match between average hourly generation and Iron Mountain's real hourly offtake from the grid. Traceability and environmental statements are assured by green energy credits issued by EDP Renewables North America and sourced from the same renewable developer to uphold the credibility of the transaction's renewable effect.
