EvoSwitch Endorses EU Energy Efficiency Program
Operator of European data center EvoSwitch (www.evoswitch.com) said Tuesday it has signed the Code of Conduct on the efficiency of data centers energy.
European data centers that have signed this agreement are obliged to reduce its energy consumption by 20 percent by 2020.
EvoSwitch says it “substantially exceeds” guidelines for energy conservation as outlined in the Code of Conduct of the EU. The company currently consumes 40 percent less energy than a traditional data center has a PUE of 1.6.
Once the entire data center expansion, the facility will increase to 80 percent, which is equivalent to a PUE of 1.2.
Launched by the European Commission in November, the European Voluntary Code of Conduct on Energy Efficiency Data Center is designed to discourage excessive energy consumption in data centers.
The Code provides guidelines, recommendations and examples of good practice to save energy in data centers.
Earlier this year, data from the equipment vendor 3Com data center and power center development of power system assets and the manufacturer announced its endorsement of the Code of Conduct on Data.
By signing the agreement, EvoSwitch be required to report periodically on energy consumption in your data center to the headquarters in Italy Joint Research Center of the European Institute for Energy.
“The Code of Conduct for Data Center Energy Efficiency is a good European initiative and hope to encourage more data centers in Europe to invest in reducing their energy consumption,” says Eric Boonstra, managing director of EvoSwitch. “The prudent objective of saving 20 percent energy consumption is a good start. Across the market, I think is a realistic and achievable. Old data centers will never be able to function as efficiently as a completely new center data, but there are sufficient technologies available to achieve the target of 20 percent. ”
In the near future, the guidelines in the Code of Conduct on energy efficiency data center also will be used by the Dutch central government and government agencies and local authorities for the purchase of external services for data centers.
