Who’s who? Kelly Smith, MD of Smartbunker


A very formal pose is struck by Kelly Smith, the managing director at Smartbunker – a data centre that claims it uses zero carbon energy.

Power used within the 30,000 square feet data centre is free from carbon emissions, being generated entirely from renewable resources.

If this is true, Greenbang wants to know more about this.

They say:

“Smartbunker’s zero carbon energy policy is a preferable alternative to ‘carbon offsetting’ in which carbon emitted by traditional energy supplies is theoretically neutralised by projects designed to extract carbon from the environment.

He says:

“All the elements of design guarantees that our customers have all the service and environmental benefits at no additional cost,”

Kelly has 20 years’ experience in IT. He co-founded Centrinet in 1995.
