Sify Technologies Limited has signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) with Vibrant Energy Holdings for a total 231 MW of solar and wind energy capacity to power its latest hyperscale data centers in India.
Vibrant Energy Holdings (Vibrant) is a majority-owned subsidiary of Blue Leaf Energy Asia, which is a portfolio company indirectly invested in by Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG) and operating on a standalone basis.
Out of 231 MW of green power, PPA for 67 MW solar had been signed in March 2021 and the capacity was recently commissioned.
By simultaneously investing in both solar and wind energy, Sify will be able to meet most of the power required for its flagship data centers in Mumbai from renewable sources.
This partnership is the first step in minimizing the company’s dependence on fossil fuels to power its data centers.
Raju Vegesna, Chairman, Sify, said, “There is intensifying dialogue about adopting green energy. We decided to lead by action, as we always have done in the ICT space. With the constantly expanding need for world-class data center facilities to meet the burgeoning data-centric transformation of Indian businesses, we believe that investing in clean energy sources to fuel this transformation is a social imperative. Sify is proud to be doing its part to help our customers become a part of this clean energy future.”
Oliver Lewis, Chairman of Vibrant and Executive Director of GIG said: “We are very excited by Vibrant’s continued growth in capacity to provide green energy solutions to businesses in India, supporting India’s decarbonization. The partnership with Sify Technologies marks a new milestone on Vibrant’s journey of providing green energy and tailored solutions to meet the growing business demand.”
