We have gone 100% green and have eliminated using any data centers not following this practice. All SHOUTcast servers are powered by 100% wind energy.
Server energy usage is lower depending on the level of server stress, dropping to less than 50% of the maximum energy utilization depending on traffic.
Our energy supplier is Hydro Québec, whose electricity production is100% renewable, and 98% from hydroelectricity. Hydroelectricity only produces just 4 grams of CO2 per Kwh of electricity. That’s 56% less CO2 than wind energy, and less than 1% of that of natural gas and coal. In Québec electricity generation represents just 1% of all Green House Gas emissions, versus 32.5% in the USA.
We use high-tech free cooling technology to cool two of our data centers, cooling your servers using the cold Canadian winter air. Average temperatures in Montreal are significantly lower than most of the United States, with average minimum temperatures below freezing for five months of the year.
