Green-powered Hosting

Many organizations are taking steps to reduce the environmental impact of their operations, with an eye towards increasing their sustainability.

Data centres and servers have been highlighted as areas where substantial energy is consumed, and is set to rise in coming years if internet growth continues at current rates.  The majority of this energy does not come from renewable sources, and so it contributes to problems such as global climate change.

PeaceWorks provides green hosting to reduce your environmental footprint – if you host your website and email services with us then you are part of the solution (not part of the problem)!

How we do it

In an ideal world, we would use renewable energy providers and plug this power directly into our servers.  However things aren't that simple – our servers are located in several datacentres located in Canada and the US, and we do not have control over the energy contracts which supply the datacentres.

So, we worked out how much energy is consumed by our hosting operations – this includes all of our web and email servers as well as datacentre infrastructure and cooling .  For each unit of energy we consume, we purchase that same amount of certified renewable energy in the form of Green Tags (also called Renewable Energy Certificates), and this energy is injected onto the grid.

Benefits

By purchasing renewable energy, we reduce the amount of energy that needs to be generated by non-renewable sources (fossil fuels), so this reduces carbon emissions.

A second benefit is that we are supporting the growing green power market, helping it to ramp up capacity and compete with conventional energy sources.

Spread the Word

If you host with PeaceWorks, let your clients, customers and consituents know about it!  We've prepared some tags you can add to your website to show that you're part of the solution.
