Agreement for the efficiency of data centres

Agreement for the efficiency of data centres

The EU, the US, the Japanese government and the IT industry have established a common metric for the assessment of energy efficiency in data centres. Based on the agreement, signatories with firms involved in the manufacturing and running of servers and data centres are obliged to adopt measures that provide a minimum level of energy savings. The agreement promises to be an important step for the boosting of the energy efficiency of the data centre by breaking the increase of the energy use in the sector.
