Green Grid Supports EU’s Code of Conduct on Data Center Energy Efficiency
The Green Grid announced support for the recently-released European Commission’s Code of Conduct on Data Center Energy Efficiency.
The Code of Conduct is a voluntary commitment of European companies, and aims to reduce data center energy consumption through the adoption of best practices leading to agreed energy savings targets.
The European Commission’s Joint Research Center is using Green Grid’s Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE) metric, as the metric for which data centers in the EU will be measured for efficiency. The DCiE metric helps data center operators determine how much energy is consumed by IT equipment and how much is consumed by the facility itself.
Green Grid board member Roger Tipley recommends companies measure total data center energy use every 15 minutes, over the course of a year, to help develop baselines.
