Green Data Centre Roadmap

Green Data centre roadmap

Over the last decade, data centres, being the backbone of our digital societies, have made strides in successfully implementing energy efficient measures to reduce their energy and carbon footprint and bring down the accompanying costs. Nevertheless, as the industry becomes more mature and aware of its social and environmental impact and responsibilities, it becomes apparent that new opportunities can arise. In addition, developments in related sectors such as integration of renewable energy sources to power grids, heat networks and emerging energy services models provide fertile grounds to explore further data centre interaction with their local ecosystem to continuously improve their energy efficiency.

One of the tasks is to create a Green Data Centre Roadmap and the latest version can be seen below.

The roadmap consists of 14 lines and 138 stations and an associated Green Data Centre Handbook. All are in development and will be published in Deliverable D8.11 scheduled to be released in August 2020 (M35). We are currently making this roadmap “interactive” and we are expecting a draft version to be released by the end of May 2020, ready for a public release in June 2020. The official launch will be at an event in Q3, we are still in the process of organising this event, but due to the coronavirus lockdown in various countries in the EU plus travel restrictions we are unable to confirm at the present time, rest assured that once the event has been organised we will provide details on this website, the twitter feed and the linked in pages.
