EURECA, an EU-funded project that helps public procurers buy and tender for better, more energy efficient data centre solutions, will hold a free event on 29 February 2016 in Turin (Italy), which will showcase new tools being developed by the project. At the heart of the event will be an introduction to a web programme designed to help guide public procurers through the complex process of buying green data centre products and services.
The event will also outline the background of the project and discuss the benefits of greater energy efficiency within data centres. It is the aim of the project members to learn how the public sector procures data centre services and products in Italy, and how EURECA and the EURECA tools may be of help in this process.
Paolo Bertoldi of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) will be among the speakers at the meeting. Around 50 participants will attend. Registration is available online, and is open to all public sector employees involved in procurement. The EURECA project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 scheme.
