EU Code of Conduct on Data Centre Energy Efficiency
We are a Code 'endorser'
Datacentre UK is an 'endorser' of the EU Code of Conduct on Data Centre Energy Efficiency (the Code).
Formulated by the EU's Joint Research Centre, the Code is a measured response to the energy challenges the EU faces. Its aim is to encourage companies with datacentres to reduce energy consumption while ensuring business objectives continue to be met. Datacentres have been singled out specifically as they have been identified as high users of energy.
The code is voluntary, with recommended best practice split into seven distinct areas:
• Datacentre utilisation, management and planning
• IT equipment and services
• Datacentre power equipment
• Other datacentre equipment
• Datacentre building
As an endorser, we have pledged to implement the Code's
ethos through devising products and services that help
'participants' (companies committed to the aims of the
Code) to bring their datacentres into line with its best practice
