The competition watchdog the ACCC has granted authorisation for a joint renewable energy purchasing group led by Equinix, where applicants will pool their demand and collectively tender and negotiate to purchase power from a solar or wind electricity generation facility in Australia.

Commenting on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s determination, Guy Danskine, Managing Director, Equinix Australia, said, “Equinix is delighted with the ACCC’s approval, which is an important milestone that will help us work towards our recently announced commitment to becoming climate neutral globally by 2030, meeting our science-based target aligned to the Paris Agreement 1.5 degree scenario and reaching our long-term goal of 100% clean and renewable energy”.

“As the first data centre company to issue a 100% renewable energy goal back in 2015, we have been actively considering opportunities to increase the quantity, quality and locality of our renewable energy purchases where feasible and adding to our coverage in Asia-Pacific.”

The ACCC’s determination will come into force on 2 September 2021 and applications for review of the determination should be lodged directly with the  Australian Competition Tribunal.
