      Data Centre Operators Are Too Self-Reliant
      Data centre operators rely too heavily on their own internal knowledge, instead of referring to sources of best practice such as the European Code of Conduct for Data Centre Efficiency, according to a webinar led by eWEEK Europe. Although there are many good ways to improve the efficiency of data centres, most operators are relying very heavily on the way it has always been done, according to presenters in Efficiency in Data Center Design, a webinar chaired by eWEEK Europe, as part of BrightTalk’s Efficient Data Center summit.

      Green It- show me the measurement - by Peter Judge
      It won't be a surprise to readers of Green Data Center News that reducing energy use is about making money, but not everyone sees it that way. "Rather than pushing the green agenda down the priority list, a new report [from Frost & Sullivan] has found that the economic downturn may have actually made businesses in the ICT sector pay more attention to the subject, as a way to cut costs," reported my site, eWEEK Europe UK this week. As my daughters might say, well, duh! We've known all along that cutting waste of any kind should make businesses more efficient and the green agenda is always at least partly about the money. What is interesting about the Frost Report, and another one from hosting specialist On365 is the increasing realisation that Green IT fundamentally has to be all about the measurement.

  2. About Carbon Reduction Commitment

    The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) is a proposed mandatory cap and trade scheme in the United Kingdom that will apply to large non energy-intensive organisations in the public and private sectors. It is anticipated that the scheme will have cut carbon emissions by 1.2 million tonnes of carbon per year by 2020. The British Government is committed to cutting UK carbon emissions by 60% by 2050, compared to 1990 levels.

    The Carbon Reduction Commitment was announced in the 2007 Energy White Paper, published on May 23, 2007. A consultation in 2006showed strong support for it to be mandatory, rather than a voluntary. The Commitment is to be introduced under enabling powers planned for inclusion in the Climate Change Bill. A consultation into the scheme's implementation is to be launched in June 2007.
