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.

EU GPP case study: Using LCA and CO2 performance to assess bidders (Rijkswaterstaat, The Netherlands)
Rijkswaterstaat (RWS) is the Department of Public Works within the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. Along with performance-based specifications, RWS uses two tools within their procurement processes to encourage sustainable working practices, the use of green materials, energy efficiency and reduced carbon emissions. Contractors bidding for large infrastructure projects, such as the construction of roads, bridges and tunnels, are assessed on 11 different parameters of environmental impacts associated with their proposed designs. Bidders’ commitments to reducing CO 2 emissions throughout projects are also taken into account during the award phase. These methods aim to utilise the market’s creative capacities to achieve better quality, more innovative solutions.
