Why Talen Energy joined iMasons Foundation Partner Program
Talen Energy and our subsidiary, Cumulus Data, have a shared mission to solve the energy ‘trilemma’ which we define as the convergence between the growing demand for digital infrastructure with ESG mandates and consumer preferences for carbon-free, low-cost, reliable electricity. This is a key focus for our Cumulus Growth platform, which is building carbon-free hyperscale data centers coupled with renewable energy and battery storage development to meet this rapidly growing consumer demand. We share iMason’s commitment to accelerating a path to carbon neutrality and look forward to collaborating with iMasons, our data center customers, and the industry to achieve this goal.
