About Us

EURECA Project - EU Resource Efficiency Coordination Action

The EURECA project is an EU commission funded project under the H2020 programme. EURECA started in March 2015 and will run for 36 months with partners from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Netherlands and Germany. EURECA is designed to provide tailored solutions to help identify the cost saving opportunities whilst signposting the environmental impact of procurement choices in data centres.

EURECA is currently supporting consolidation, new build and retrofit data centre projects in various European countries, with focus on public procurement for innovation (PPI). Additionally, EURECA is supporting the development of European standards, best practices and polices related to energy efficiency in data centres and green public procurement by providing the scientific evidence and data.
