"Sustainable Energy Week" EUSEW 2017 (Brussels)
ICTFOOTPRINT.eu was invited to join the panel of speakers of “Data centres — nearly zero energy consumption”, during EUSEW 2017. The session was dedicated to debate and share insights on how to increase data centres energy efficiency, in order to reduce their demand to operate under proper conditions and sourcing the energy required to operate from on-site or nearby renewable sources.
Trust-IT Services, project coordinator of ICTFOOTPRINT.eu, shared with the audience the data centres’ section in its marketplace, where a number of sustainable ICT service providers showcase their solutions, zooming into some virtuous data centres and inspiring related success stories. Special focus was dedicated also to presenting the ICTFOOTPRINT.eu Self-Assessment Tool for ICT Services, known as SAT-S, a useful, free, quick and easy-to-use tool to calculate the carbon footprint of ICT services.
