July 20, 2015

A group of EU research projects has released a new report on efficiency metrics for data centres.

The Smart City Cluster has released the Measurement and Verification Methodology for Energy, Environmental and Economic Efficiency Metrics

The cluster of EU research projects includes:

  • 6 FP7 Projects from the Call on Data Centres Sustainability: DC4Cities, RenewIT, Dolfin, GENiC, GEYSER & GreenDataNet, aiming to increase renewable energies use, heat reuse and the utilization of Smart Grids;
  • 2 projects from a previous FP7 Call : All4Green, CoolEmAll;
  • one H2020 project on public procurement of sustainable data centres (EURECA).

With a total of 60 partners, the aim of the cluster is to develop new environmental efficiency metrics and methodologies, used to measure common variables, compare results and collectively support standards development.

The new report can be downloaded from the EC Smart City website.
