EC Lab scientific research referenced in the EU Green Public Procurement criteria

29 June 2020

EC Lab’s scientific research under the EU Commission funded EURECA project was referenced by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) in their Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria for data centres, server rooms, and cloud services, in June 2020.

In the report, the criteria set aims to help public authorities ensure that data centres’ equipment and services are procured in such a way that they deliver environmental improvements that contribute to European policy objectives for energy, climate change, and resource efficiency, as well as reducing life cycle costs.
