Feedback Period Open: Share Your Views on Sustainability of EU Data Centers
From December 11, 2023, to January 15, 2024 (midnight Brussels time), the European Commission invites your feedback on a newly introduced reporting scheme. This initiative aims to assess the sustainability of data centers operating within the European Union.
The origins of this scheme can be traced back to the agreed-upon text of the revised Energy Efficiency Directive (Directive 2012/27/EU), emphasizing the need for reporting on the energy performance and sustainability aspects of data centers.
In a broader context, this initiative aligns with the EU's overarching 'Fit for 55' ambition, which strives to enhance energy efficiency across the entire energy system and relevant sectors. The Commission encourages stakeholders to actively participate in providing feedback during this crucial period.
