The agreement between the two parties will provide a framework to increase the effectiveness of the work done by The Green Grid and Gimelec, leading to an improvement in awareness, standards and energy efficiency within the data centre industry.
Areas of intended collaboration include:
- Joint work on the harmonization and globalization of best practices, metrics and measurements
- Joint engagement of French associations working in the data centre field
Alain Le Calvé, chief delegate of the Data Centre platform at the Gimelec, added, “Gimelec is a very active group in French and worldwide standardization and improvement of energy efficiency. As such I am very pleased that we are going to be working collaboratively with an organization with the global reach of The Green Grid to promote the data centre energy efficiency strategies and solutions of the future.”
