EU officials have named fan manufacturer ebm-papst UK an official champion of energy saving protocols in data centres.
The Chelmsford-based company has become an official endorser of the European Commission’s (EC) Code of Conduct for Data Centres and will be responsible for promoting the code among new and existing clients in the UK and around the world.
The code of conduct is a voluntary initiative, run by the EC’s Institute for Energy and Transport (IET), which recognises the efforts of big businesses across Europe to measure and reduce the energy consumption of their IT equipment and auxiliary systems.
ebm-papst UK head of sustainable technology Helen McHugh said: “We look forward to helping the institute recruit more participants onto its data centre scheme, which aims to measure and recognise the efforts made by businesses to cut energy usage.”
Welcoming ebm-papst UK to the scheme as an endorser, IET spokesman Paolo Bertoldi said he looked forward to collaborating with the company in future and welcoming more UK participants onto the scheme as a result of ebm-papst UK’s advocacy.
