Going Green: Sun in the German Press

  1. The DER SPIEGEL article is about the second biggest hosting service (Strato) in Germany going green in early 2008. They will power their data centers in Berlin and Karlsruhe with renewable energies, although with old hydro power plants. It is not about its competitor (1&1) which is the biggest bulk hosting service. This was just a comparison.

    ecologee.net has a list of all known web hosting services using renewables worldwide.
