The team investigates challenges and opportunities in relation to the sustainability of today's large-scale Cloud and data centre environments. With the proliferation of BigData, IoT, and social media, all of which reside in the Cloud, there is an ever increasing demand for energy in data centres. Data centres in Europe are estimated to consume over 104TWh every year, and this is continually increasing.
The EC group expertise cover a number of areas, including:
- Best practices and technologies for power and energy efficiency in data centres
- Digital transformation and environmental efficiency of public sector data centre facilities
- Capacity planning for power efficiency in software deployment
- Energy aware software engineering
- Enterprise and Software Architecture
