News Update

- I guess it's easier for a relatively small island, but Malta is showing larger countries the way by investing €70m in installing the first national smart grid network. IBM has won the contract with Enemalta (the national electricity utility) and Water Services Corporation (WSC). Apparently 250,000 meters will be replaced by 2012.

- IBM again. This time it's the company's launch of a technical validation programme, called "Ready for IBM Energy & Environment". It's designed to help clients identify offerings from its 100,000 Business Partners that provide energy and environmental benefits.

- The Green Grid has launched new programmes, tools, metrics and reporting guidelines to help data centre managers improve the efficiency of their operations. The Data Centre 2.0 programme will cover both new data centres and retrofits and will include a recognition program for end-users reporting their PUE or DCiE measurements. The Green Grid is also launching 'The Green Grid Academy', a set of training materials to help users better understand how to deploy industry-standard metrics.

Don't forget - a pdf of all the 2008 blogs is available with news, comment and links to a range of sources. Click
here for more details. The offer ends on Friday February 13th, so don't be unlucky ...
