Europe’s energy efficient data center best practice?

Stand-by power of electrical equipment is the electricity consumed by end-use devices when they are switched off or not performing their main function. Stand-by power consumption is an increasing fraction of the European Union’s electricity use and the fast penetration of new and digital technology is likely to increase this share. It is estimated that stand-by power already accounts for about 10% of the electricity use in homes and offices of the EU Member States. Recently, the European Climate Change Programme indicated the urgent need to take actions to reduce stand-by losses (see press release).

Check this out, the European Unions’ discussions and reports on energy efficiency in the data center, it’s under development, but it’s really cool to see what the groups involved are talking about.
