The Carbon Trust and the BCS

The Carbon Trust, which is a company set up by the UK Government to work with business and the public sector to reduce carbon emissions, has partnered with the British Computer Society (BCS), the UK's professional body for those working in IT, to develop a software tool to help companies understand the energy use in data centres.

The software is expected to be available in early 2009 and will be released through an open source license. The idea is that it will provide outputs that allow operators to manage total cost of ownership, energy efficiency and carbon emissions by service or application.
