EURECA Project - EU Resource Efficiency Coordination Action

The EURECA project tackles the lack of knowledge and awareness on how to identify and procure environmentally sound and sustainable data centres. The work will encompass solutions for pre-commercial procurement (PCP) and procurement of innovative solutions (PPI). This will be achieved by consolidating recognised and emerging benchmark criteria into an easy-to-use tool that can be deployed and used by non-experts.

Amid growing concerns of increased energy consumption and the related environmental impact of IT and data centre facilities the Public Sector is moving to ever more digitisation and e-services to reduce costs under even tighter budgetary constraints. The EURECA project is a new EU commission funded project which is designed to provide tailored solutions to help identify the cost saving opportunities whilst signposting the environmental impact of procurement choices.

On these pages you will be able to find out more about the project and access resources to roadmap your data centre (available from Q2 2016). In the meantime we invite Public Sector Organisations to register in order to keep up to date with developments to benefit from early adoption or participate on the development of the programme.
