TXU Energy announced five innovative North Texas companies as category winners

PLANO, TX – November 1, 2023– NTT DATA, a digital business and IT services leader, was recognized for Leadership in Sustainability by TXU Energy. The award program recognized corporate and nonprofit leaders defining energy responsibility in the categories of energy management, sustainability, engagement, innovation and community.

Realizing a sustainable future is a top priority for NTT DATA. This includes investing in renewable energy as the company moves toward becoming net zero by 2040. NTT DATA purchased Renewable Energy Certificates for 100% of its load for five years through 2027 in its data center in Plano, Texas.

“We take our responsibility as a global IT and business services provider seriously, and investing in renewable energy in data centers is a meaningful action for us to take as we move toward net zero,” said Corie Pierce, Vice President, Sustainability, NTT DATA Services. “We will continue to innovate sustainable technologies and responsible energy usage on our journey, and we appreciate TXU’s partnership along the way.”

In addition, NTT DATA also completed major efficiency upgrades through its partnership with TXU Energy, using Greenback Rebate dollars to make HVAC improvements, saving nearly 200,000 kWh annually.

In 2022, NTT DATA also significantly upgraded the cooling system on its data floor. These improvements include new humidification controls, the removal of redundant cooling fans, and extending chilled water storage from three to nine hours daily. As a result of these upgrades, NTT DATA is saving 1,000,000 kWh each month.

“TXU Energy is proud to recognize this year’s winners and their commitment to a clean energy future,” said Gabe Castro, Senior Vice President of Business Markets, TXU Energy. “From cutting-edge ideas to sustainable solutions, these companies and organizations show energy leadership in action. We are honored to be partners on this mission.”
