Data centre platform provider, Digital Edge, and renewable developer and independent power producer, Peak Energy, have agreed to collaborate on renewable energy projects to power Digital Edge data centres across Asia.

Through this partnership, Peak Energy and Digital Edge will jointly pursue an initial pipeline of 500MW of operating capacity for both existing and planned data centers over a three-year period.

Peak Energy, which focuses on a combination of solar, wind, and storage technologies, will target renewable energy projects in countries where Digital Edge has existing deployments, including Japan, Korea, Indonesia, India, and the Philippines, in addition to other fast growing markets to support Digital Edge’s expansion.

“To date, we have made substantial progress in leveraging renewable energy across the Digital Edge platform, with our EDGE1 facility in Jakarta becoming the first data centre in Indonesia to run on 100% renewables. Through this partnership with Peak Energy, we will be able to further build on these initiatives and advance our ESG goals,” said Samuel Lee, Chief Executive Officer at Digital Edge.

These projects will support the decarbonisation of up to 1GW of power, and generate more than 1,300 GWh per year which is equivalent to removing 216,000 cars off the road. This partnership also allows both Digital Edge and Peak Energy to progress their respective business and sustainability objectives.

“Peak Energy is focused on helping corporates reduce their power costs and carbon footprints in a sustainable way … This partnership will foster the common business objectives of two rapidly growing companies throughout the Asia Pacific region,” said Gavin Adda, Chief Executive Officer at Peak Energy.

Digital Edge and Peak Energy are both portfolio companies of Stonepeak, an alternative investment firm specialising in infrastructure and real assets with a strong focus on both data centres and renewable energy assets.
