The EURECA Consortium, of which The DCA is a leading contributor, won an award for the Industry Initiative of the Year.  Rabih Bashroush, EURECA Project Co-ordinator from the University of East London accepted the accolade at the DCD Awards in London last week. The DCA have been a part of the project since it was established in 2014 along with a number of other consortium partners.


Working closely with Professor Rabih Bashroush and his team, The DCA supported the dissemination of the project, its research and conclusions. Others involved in the project include Mark Acton from CBRE, John Booth from Carbon3IT, Dr Frank Verhaegen from Certios, Mark Andre Wolf from Maki Consulting, Dr Jon Summers, Leeds University, Jaak Vlasveld, Esther Van-Bergen and Julie Chenadec from Green IT Amsterdam.


The DCD judges were impressed with EURECA, a project that improves energy efficiency across Europe - saving data centres at least 52GWh per year. The project highlighted that important energy-efficiency gains are possible for datacentres, especially datacentres in the public sector.


The project’s influence is already being recognised in the policies, standards, and best practices it has been helping to shape. EURECA will impact energy efficiency in the DC industry for many years to come.
