The Green Grid Releases The First Comprehensive Guide To European Data Centre Legislation

October 20, 2009 by · Comments Off on The Green Grid Releases The First Comprehensive Guide To European Data Centre Legislation 

Hosting Tools London, UK – The Green Grid, a global consortium dedicated to advancing energy efficiency in data centres and business computing ecosystems, has today launched an easily digestible guide to policies affecting the data centre industry in EMEA. The guide, which provides organisations with everything they need to know about current and forthcoming policies, is the latest initiative by The Green Grid to dramatically raise the energy efficiency of data centres in both the short and long term. The Green Grid announced this news today from the EMEA Technical Forum in London and will be discussing this at their upcoming Technical Forum in Paris this Thursday, October 22 as well. Last week The Green Grid also held EMEA Technical Forums in Frankfurt, Germany and Amsterdam.

As climate change and fuel security have significantly moved up in the policy agenda, more comprehensive policy frameworks have been developed at both the European Union (EU) and national levels. The growth of data centres, and their energy intensity, means the industry will be particularly affected by the drive for energy efficiency of product design and building services. In fact, this is one of the key highlights expected to result from the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit in December this year.
