Green Grid Supports EU Data Centre Code of Conduct

The Green Grid, which as I'm sure you know is a consortium of IT companies (including AMD, Dell, HP, IBM, Intel and Microsoft) aiming to improve energy efficiency in data centres, has come out in support of the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres, which I reported on yesterday.

The EU (and everyone else) is using the Green Grid's Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE) metric (and its equivalent Power Usage Effectiveness - PUE - metric) to measure efficiency. DCiE/PUE compares IT power consumption with that of the data centre as a whole.
