Data Centre Industry

A widely known and promoted short-term goal EU has set is about reducing its emissions to 20% below 1990 levels by 2020. The past decade, the data centre industry in Europe, acknowledging the benefits to support this goal, has initiated and joined efforts to reduce their energy consumption and environmental footprint. The GEYSER project contributes to such efforts by developing tools to support the integration of data centres to smart grids and smart cities, going beyond isolated, state-of-the-art solutions. 

To this end, the GEYSER Suite offers an intelligent software layer on top of the existing management framework to support data centre managers and operators. The Suite provides the latter with essential insights to their data centre's energy consumption and production while leveraging on strategies that promote their integration with the local grid and smart city infrastructure. 

At the heart of the GEYSER Suite lies the multi-criteria energy efficiency optimization engine. This engine enables data centres to exploit their high demand flexibility and provide an optimal capacity and operational planning. In doing so, data centres can shape their power consumption profile to meet various objectives in collaboration with requests coming from the local grid and thus allowing them to participate in demand response programs or (local) ancillary service markets.
