Green data centre blueprint is Europe’s best

Monday, May 11, 2009

A data centre being built in the east of England has been recognised as one of the most energy efficient in Europe, despite not yet being open for business.

Plans for the The Elean Data Campus that is taking shape near Ely, Cambridgeshire have been recognised in the US Department of Energy and the Uptime Institute's Global Green IT Awards, which has nominated the site as Europe's leading energy efficient data centre. 

The 65,000m2 of data centre floorspace that is planned at the unit will be powered by an existing straw-burning power station, which will give guaranteed energy savings of 40%, according to the company behind the scheme.
