As large electricity consumers with highly automated processes, data centers are optimal subjects to implement measures for more intelligent power consumption. The IT industry can play a vital role to the overall reduction of carbon emission and energy consumption of the energy system.
By implementing measures to consume renewable energy where and when it's available they can additionally benefit from lower prices, and help integrate renewables into the energy mix. By paring innovative technologies with smart locations the wider energy system benefits from a more responsive and flexible power consumption that reduces grid congestion and smooths peaks in consumption.
This working group brings together the relevant market players to identify the technologies, define pricing & legal frameworks as well as explore potential pilot projects together.
