Case Studies: Public Procurement of Energy Efficient Data Centres
“Green” data centres not only suppose a significant reduction of monetary costs, but also offer a sustainable, innovative, safer and energy efficient computing solution.
This series of case studies, compiled within the European PrimeEnergyIT project, present some of the good practice experiences from public authorities in Europe on energy efficient data centres. The different scenarios included in this compilation confirm that the public procurement of newly constructed data centres originates from the necessity to achieve more efficient energy consumption, reduced operative and maintenance costs, and safer data storage through higher availability and improved redundancy.

Green Public Procurement for the efficient use of economic and natural resources
This guide presents the main strategies that support the implementation of the environmental perspective in public procurement in an economically efficient way. Real examples are presented including quantitative terms, whenever possible, of the environmental benefits and economic savings that the strategy or action allowed to achieve.
The iCars Network contributes to the deployment of Transport ICT technologies (or ITS – “Intelligent Transport Systems”) by exchanging knowledge and experience on these technologies among a wide variety of stakeholders on a number of specific topics including the exchange of information between the world of ITS development and the world of public procurement.
Westborough School, Essex, England - School refurbishment for carbon-reductions
This case study looks at the refurbishment of a UK school which is expected to lead to savings of 67 tonnes CO2 per annum from a combination of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy installations.
In 2009 voltage power optimisation technology (powerPerfector) was installed in Bromley Civic Centre. As a result energy consumption has decreased by 11.5%, annual energy bills by £42,050, and CO2 emissions by 188,300kg.
EU GPP case study: Green primary school (Pembroke, Malta)
The primary school in Pembroke was a new build project and the goal was to construct the first energy selfsufficient school in Malta that relied only on solar and wind energy produced on site for electricity and warm water. The school, which is two storeys high is fully accessible for students with special needs.
