Harnessing waste heat — a new standard improves energy efficiency of data centres

Novel solutions are needed to reduce emissions from telecommunications, and the focus is now on data centres with high energy consumption. The new ERF standard gives data centres the means to measure, in a reliable and comparable manner, how much of the heat that they produce can be recovered and exploited. The international standard, prepared under the guidance of Finnish experts, helps data centres to cut not only their CO2 emissions but also energy costs.
