The GENiC project is an initiative supported by the FP7 Program from the European Commission. It aims to develop an integrated management and control system for data centres, encompassing all the main energy consumers and producers: computation, data storage, HVAC, electricity generation and storage. The ultimate goal is to improve energy efficiency in data centres through a holistic energy management approach.

The GENiC platform provides a set of services that are loosely coupled on the GENiC controller cluster to support energy optimisation. These provide functionalities to handle DC model mapping, sensor telemetry (Airflow, temperature and power), workload actuation, fault detection and diagnosis and historical data storage. The platform provides control and optimisation functions along with decision support tools that allows data centre operators to achieve a substantial reduction in energy consumption, PUE and CUE.
