Photo of article Innovative software improves buildings performance

Buildings around the world are getting a boost in energy efficiency and comfort thanks to quality management software developed by EU-funded researchers.

Published: 3 March 2020


Photo of article Power-hungry data centres to go on permanent diet

EU-funded researchers are on the verge of slashing the energy used by internet data centres to help cut CO2 emissions. By developing a model to optimise energy in real time, they aim to make the centres more efficient without affecting performance.
