Well as far as DC's go:

Installing 4MW of Trigen in M1 and 4MW at S1
Installing 1MW of solar including Australia's largest 100% privately funded rooftop installation at M1 in about 6 weeks
These are technologies in which we are generating onsite energy using a reduced carbon footprint (trigen 70% and PV 100%).

Plenty of other things regarding sustainability and energy efficiency including direct and indirect free air cooling etc. but we are starting to look at larger scale low-carbon energy generation business models.

Subject: [AusNOG] FW: Going and Promoting Green in ICT

Hi All

I am currently doing some research into Sustainability in the ICT sector and was wondering whether you have any strategies in place to promote sustainability, whether the environment plays a role in influencing your decision making during purchases of equipment or infrastructure builds. Doing a simple web search has highlighted many sites with dedicated content with some good ideas towards going green in ICT.

Is there anything you could share from your past, current or future initiatives in this area?
Any contributions from quick wins to longer term goals and how to measure the benefits would be greatly appreciated.
