EU data centre design tool gaining support

27 September 2016

A project to assist in the design of energy-efficient data centres is gaining increasing support, with BSRIA the latest to announce its backing.

Funded by the European Union (EU), the RenewIT project involves a number of partners and has recently launched an free, online resource for data centre design.

It compares over 60 European regions for cost of electricity, access to renewable energy and other relevant factors.

The tool was described as "extremely useful for industry and our members" by BSRIA Sustainable Construction Group manager Jo Harris.

It will allow those operating data centres to repeat the advantages and costs of various models, while also predicting productivity gains from options such as free cooling and other aspects, said Ms Harris.

While the tool currently covers the EU region, it was further stated that there was potential to extend this to other parts of the world in future.
