Key Trends in Europe on Data Center Energy Efficiency

The Green Grid recently hosted a series of virtual roundtables to discuss its latest research in Europe about the trends impacting data center energy efficiency, monitoring tools and the pressures placed upon IT leaders to increase energy efficiency. Key findings discussed in the roundtables include:

  • 88 percent stated that data centers are an important part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy
  • However, nearly half (43 percent) have no energy efficiency objectives in place for the design and operation of their data centers
  • In addition, only 29 percent of organizations are able to entirely quantify the environmental impact of their data centers
  • This is despite increasing pressure from both national and EU policy makers to improve environmental sustainability
  • Nevertheless, 97 percent saw areas in which their data center monitoring, including energy efficiency, could be improved

The webcast recordings are available online now:
