energy sources.

The data centre, in Slough, Berkshire, will draw power from a local combined heat and power plant that uses wood chips, waste paper and fibre fuel to generate electricity, hot water and steam.

Power for the data centre comes from the UK's largest dedicated bio-mass energy plant, which is operated by Scottish and Southern Energy.

Servers are now being installed in the data centre and the site is due to go live in June
