Telkom, through its subsidiary NeutraDC, is strongly focused on developing the data centre business while remaining committed to applying ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) principles. To achieve this goal, they have initiated a partnership with Medco Power Indonesia, an energy company, to jointly work towards Net Zero Emissions. This collaborative effort was formalised through the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two parties during the 11th Indonesia New, Renewable Energy, and Energy Conservation Conference & Exhibition held at ICE BSD City, Tangerang, Banten.
The MoU signifies the beginning of a cooperative endeavour to conduct joint studies on green energy sources and renewable energy provision to meet the needs of the NeutraDC Database, which commenced operations in Batam.
This strategic collaboration aligns with Telkom’s vision to position itself as a significant player in the data centre industry while remaining mindful of environmental and social responsibilities. By exploring green energy alternatives and pursuing Net Zero Emissions, Telkom and Medco Power Indonesia are taking meaningful steps towards creating a more sustainable future for the data centre sector in Indonesia.
Main Director of Telkom Data Ecosystem (NeutraDC), Andreuw Th.AF, said that since the beginning the construction of the Hyperscale Data Centre building has been designed with the concept of decarbonisation. So this collaboration is in line with NeutraDC principles in terms of using renewable energy.
“We are very enthusiastic about this collaboration. Net Zero Emission has always been a concern for our company. We also want to play a role in carrying out Indonesia’s Net Zero Emission target by 2060,” said Andreuw.
It was further explained, the large electricity usage capacity to run the Hyperscale Data Centre’s operations was the reason for NeutraDC to commit to implementing decarbonisation.
