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.

Working with suppliers to achieve social opportunities
Since 2009, TfL has worked in partnership with suppliers to provide opportunities to people from a range of backgrounds, while also ensuring the deliverability of its future business plan. This approach has been reinforced by the Greater London Authority's Responsible Procurement Policy (2017). By inserting Stategic Labour Needs and Training (SLNT) into contracts, and working with other third sector organisations, TfL has successfully increased the routes into supply chain employment, helping to create 5,400 supply chain apprenticeship starts and over 5,000 workless job starts.
