1 European perspectives in addressing sustainability in data centres (in context, in particular, of urban environments) Mercè Griera i Fisa Smart Cities and Sustainability Directorate-General Communications Networks, Content and Technology European Commission 23 October 2012

2 Some facts Data centres consume today 2% of global electricity (expected to double soon) Combined electricity demand of ICT globally is 623bn kwh (would rank 5th among countries) Greenpeace (2011) No common measurement methodology of environmental footprint of ICT-sector Data centres form important part of citiesecosystem (cities account for 70% of global energy consumption and CO2 emissions) Cloud: game changing technology

3 EU policy March Europe 2020: Smart, Sustainable and inclusive Growth Confirmation of 20/20/20 targets for 2020 March Roadmap for moving to a competitive low carbon economy by 2050 Reducing GHG emissions by 80-95% by 2050 (compared to 1990 values) July European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities large-scale deployment of smart city solutions in Europe, focusing on intersections of ICT, energy and transport Sep European Cloud Computing Strategy Unleashing potential of Cloud Computing in Europe

4 EU GHG emissions toward 80% reduction by 2050 (compared to 1990) 100% 100% 80% Power Sector Current policy 80% 60% Residential & Tertiary 60% Industry 40% 40% Transport 20% 20% Non CO 2 Agriculture Non CO 2 Other Sectors 0% 0%

5 Roles of ICT Addressing its own environmental footprint, which is rising as the sector expands yet also Playing a leading role as an enabler of energy efficiency and sustainability in other sectors (e.g. energy, transport, manufacturing..) Data centres form core part of global ICT infrastructure

6 EU initiative: ICT-footprint Promote adoption of a common methodological framework for measuring ICT-footprint Ensure availability of relevant standards in cooperation with international standard/consensus organisations (e.g. ITU, ETSI, IEC, GHG-Protocol) Pilot testing of standards by industry

7 Objective under EU research: resource efficient data centres (1) Addressing system level technologies and associated services that will improve energy and environmental performance of data centres Expected impact: Quantifiable & significant improvement of resource efficiency (PUE, CUE, WUE..) (networks of) data centres powered at 80% or above by renewable energy sources (demos) New market opportunities (renewables etc)

8 Objective under EU research: resource efficient data centres (2) Target outcomes: Monitoring, automatic optimisation (power, cooling, computing, storage, data-transmission..) Powering through (networks of) renewables Efficient use in urban installations of heat from data centres Contributions to standards Validations of resulting systems

9 Challenging but feasible targets! Example: Kajaani data centre, Finland - Powering, cooling through renewables - PUE: 1.15 Slide courtesy: CSC, Finland

10 Ongoing EU-projects on sustainable data centres GAMES ( Methodology & toolset for holistic design & operations monitoring trading-off QoS, performance, virtual & physical resource allocation, and overall resource efficiency FIT4GREEN ( Dynamically tuning computing resources to the workload (tuning-off unused servers and automatically, restarting when load increases etc) ALL4GREEN ( Energy savings to full ecosystem in which data centres operate through collaboration between all entities in this ecosystem with the common goal of saving energy and reducing emissions (case-study: Clouds) CoolEmAll ( Advanced simulation, visualisation and decision support tools along with blueprints of computing building blocks for modular data centre environments to minimise the energy consumption & CO2 emissions

11 Data centres in a broader ecosystem New business opportunities through green-ict Open data platforms can play key role Commission estimates that by 2017, overall gains of re-use of public sector information in EU could reach 100bn per year Data centres in context of cities (where majority exists & where resources are at higher demand) Smart topologies (notably renewable-powered) of data centres could significantly reduce environmental footprint of cities Key role of interconnecting (networking) infrastructures Green and innovative procurement of public data centres: explore opportunities in EU Harmonization of procedures among MS?

12 European Cloud Computing Strategy Key actions: Cutting through the jungle of standards Safe and fair contract terms and conditions Establishing a European Cloud Partnership to drive innovation and growth from the public sector

13 Cutting through jungle of standards Cutting through jungle of technical standards so that users enjoy interoperability, data portability and reversibility is one of strategy aims Necessary standards to be identified by 2013 Commission will work with ENISA & other relevant bodies to assist development of EU-wide voluntary certification schemes and establish a list by 2014

14 Safe & fair contract terms & conditions Development of model contract terms to cover issues not covered by Common European Sales Law such as: data preservation after termination of contract data disclosure and integrity data location and transfer ownership of the data direct and indirect liability change of service by cloud providers and subcontracting

15 Establish European Cloud Partnership Aims at driving first steps towards better public procurement of cloud services in Europe, based on common definitions of requirements and possibly eventually going as far as joint procurement across borders
