On Tuesday 5 December from 11:00-12:00 C.E.T (Brussels time) the EUROCITIES’ Green Digital Charter/GuiDanCe project is setting up an online training, for cities only, on ‘Energy Efficiency in Data Centres: Lessons Learned from Evaluating Over 200 Public Sector Data Centres in Europe’ with Dr. Rabih Bashroush, Coordinator of the H2020 EURECA project.
The session will provide an overview of the lessons learned from the EU H2020-funded EURECA project (https://www.dceureca.eu/). Energy-saving opportunities, barriers to adoption and running cost of facilities are among the areas covered by the training. Some of the material presented will highlight for the first time some interesting results around average running cost of servers in the public sector, IT energy consumption distribution, and key factors affecting energy efficiency beyond PUE. Experience from a city involved in a project will be shared with the audience.
The training is suitable for civil servants including heads of IT’s, CxO’s, data centre managers, Energy managers/officers, sustainability managers/officers, as well as procurers.
Continuous Professional Development: Attendees of the training session will receive an official EURECA / GDC training certificate.
