Data centres: Can the cloud be climate neutral? EU Sustainable Energy Week EUSEW2021 policy session

Data centres: Can the cloud be climate neutral?

10 November 2021, 09:22

During EU Sustainable Energy Week EUSEW2021 a policy session discussed this topic. Participants were Dave Keating Moderator, Tor Björn Minde RISE AB, Faten Boualite Generation Climate Europe, Manuel Mateo Goyet European Commission, Kim van Sparrentak Member of the European Parliament and Carolina Koronen ECOS

How much energy does it take to stream an episode of Money Heist? Probably, more than you think. And Netflix is just one of the many data-intensive online services that we use every day. By 2030, data centres will represent 3.2% of the EU’s total electricity demand.

Limiting the environmental impact of data centres will require ambitious action. It won’t be easy. Data centres are essential infrastructure, right at the intersection between two highly prioritised policy areas: the digital and the energy transition.

The nature of the industry, with its range of business models and scales and the complexity of their operations, makes designing policy difficult. As a result, the industry is still largely self-regulated regarding energy efficiency.
