While digital is driving the industry growth, it is also feeding environmentally damaging consumption. Data centers as the engine of the digital economy are the fastest growing hidden monsters. If we run it inefficiently, it will turn into a power-hunger, heavy carbon and environmental threatening beast. Time to tame it through energy efficiency solutions.
Identifying and specifying the energy requirements to review possible options for efficiency increase along the entire energy conversion chain and select the most appropriate to the requirements.
Understand the opportunities to apply sustainable procurement practices to assist in achieving energy efficient buildings and low-carbon cities through:
Among Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) three core energy goals, energy efficiency stands out as an opportunity that all individuals, businesses and governments can take advantage of. Energy efficiency offers a range of opportunities to improve business productivity and curb carbon emissions at the same time.
