Case Study: Upgrade Iron Mountain facilities with energy efficient LED lighting to reduce costs and reduce energy consumption.


  • Iron Mountain, the global leader for storage and information management services engaged Redaptive's support in executing a multi-year energy strategy across its global portfolio. The company has a mandate to reduce electricity consumption (non-data center facilities) by 2% but needed capital to help fund their retrofit projects across their wide portfolio of sites.


  • Redaptive collaborated with CBRE, which resulted in a plan that delivers a guaranteed savings rate of 5% over a 6-year term across the first phase of sites. The second phase will include sites across Canada, Australia, and Europe along with RTU retrofits across a number of sites.
  • Together they covered all project costs and worked with Iron Mountain and installation partners to design efficiency upgrades, manage vendor the network, and navigate regional rebate programs to maximize savings.


  • Iron Mountain utilized Redaptive's flexible financing program to inject $3M of capital to buy down the contracts early. This allows the Customer to bring capital to the table when it is available to them, shorten the contract term, and earned them $750K in opex savings in 2020.


  • Project Footprint: 174 sites, 17M ft.2
  • Fixtures Upgraded: 139K
  • Annual Energy Savings: 41M kWh
