20i Pioneers Green Web Hosting: 100% Renewable Energy and Cutting-Edge Efficiency

2 weeks ago

In the world of web hosting, where energy consumption can often fly under the radar, 20i is making sure they are making a difference by powering everything with 100% renewable energy. 

And it’s a big deal, considering the internet uses over 400 terawatt-hours a year, contributing to around 3.7% of global greenhouse emissions. Our online world has a carbon footprint on par with the airline industry. 

But 20i, one of Agency Hackers Recommended Partners, is stepping up, showing the tech world it’s possible to go green without compromising on quality.

What makes 20i’s approach a game-changer isn’t just their commitment to renewable energy—it’s how they’re doing it. Their data centres are not your average tech hubs; they’re running with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.12, making them super energy efficient. That’s better than most competitors. 

They’ve also teamed up with AWS and Google Cloud – ensuring that from cooling systems to networking, it’s all completely green.

But 20i isn’t stopping at just using renewable energy. They’re pushing the envelope with their unique hosting platform, which includes some pretty smart autoscaling technology.

  • This means websites can scale up or down based on traffic, so they’re only using the juice they need, when they need it. It’s like having a car that only turns on the engine when you’re driving—super efficient.

The green ethos extends beyond the servers and right into 20i’s HQ in Nottinghamshire, which is powered by over 2,000 solar panels. They also run a paperless office, recycle everything that can be recycled, and encourage the team to work from home, car share, or cycle to work.

20i is showing the world that green web hosting isn’t just a pipe dream—it’s totally doable, and they’re leading the charge.
