Smart City Cluster collaboration included:
- 6 FP7 Projects from the Call on Data Centres Sustainability: DC4Cities, RenewIT, Dolfin, GENiC, GEYSER & GreenDataNet, aiming to increase renewable energies use, heat reuse and the utilization of Smart Grids;
- 2 projects from a previous FP7 Call : All4Green, CoolEmAll;
- one H2020 project on public procurement of sustainable data centres (EURECA).
With a total of 60 partners, the cluster's aim is to develop new environmental efficiency metrics and methodologies, used to measure common variables, compare results and collectively support standards development.
Building on last year's report on new environmental efficency metrics the cluster has just released a new report on Measurement and Verification Methodology for Energy, Environmental and Economic Efficiency Metrics.
