·         Data centres are enablers of energy saving initiatives and e-services;

·         Data centres are large energy consumers and can easily waste a great deal, if not constantly reviewed and carefully monitored;

·         EU2020 targets demand energy efficiency and increased share of “green” energy, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions;

·         There is a general lack of awareness of reliable metrics, key performance indicators (KPIs) and best practices.
