Singapore-based Digital Edge and Peak Energy Investments, backed by Stonepeak, have agreed to jointly pursue an initial 500MW pipeline of renewable energy to power existing and planned data centres 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.

Under its pan-Asian data centre platform, Digital Edge has more than US$1bn (€918m) in deployed and committed capital to provide data centre and fibre services in the region.

Samuel Lee, Digital Edge’s chief executive officer, said: “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.” Lee said his company aimed to be carbon-neutral by 2030.
