DC4Cities has participated at the EnviroInfo and ICT for Sustainability, a conference hosted by the University of Copenhagen in collaboration with the European Environment Agency from September 7-9, 2015. Project participation in this event has been twofold. On the one hand, Corentin Dupont, from CREATE-NET (Italy), delighted the audience with a DC4Cities poster on a better usage of renewable energies in data centers.
On the other, DC4Cities held a workshop on New Performance Indicators for evaluating DC energy sustainability, organized by Silvia Sanjoaquín (Gas Natural Fenosa, Spain) and María Pérez (Freemind Consulting, Belgium). The workshop presented to different stakeholders the benefits that an appropriate usage of KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) can provide as a tool to assess and improve DC energy, economic and environmental behavior to the IT industry. In addition, the workshop demonstrated the importance of KPIs in helping the adoption of energy sustainable solutions in the DC field by the Smart City authorities.
