EURECA Project - EU Resource Efficiency Coordination Action
The EURECA project is an EU commission funded project under the H2020 programme. EURECA started in March 2015 and will run for 36 months with partners from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Netherlands and Germany. EURECA is designed to provide tailored solutions to help identify the cost saving opportunities whilst signposting the environmental impact of procurement choices in data centres.
EURECA is currently supporting consolidation, new build and retrofit data centre projects in various European countries, with focus on public procurement for innovation (PPI). Additionally, EURECA is supporting the development of European standards, best practices and polices related to energy efficiency in data centres and green public procurement by providing the scientific evidence and data.

The paper titled “A Reasoning Framework for Hardware Refresh Rates in Data Centres” is now published in the IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing Journal, January 2018. The research reported provides a comprehensive framework that helps identify the energy saving opportunities, while demonstrating the overall environmental impact related to hardware refresh in data centres. The work […]
A new article was published in the Winter 2017 edition of Data Centre Management (DCM) magazine (http://www.datacentremanagement.com/) about the lessons learned from the EURECA project over the past 3 years. It provides insights and information about public sector data centres in Europe and some of the key opportunities for innovation procurement to increase energy efficiency. […]
