This week

I'll be on a webinar for the GHG protocol ICT sector guidance on Wednesday.
We're off to the Digital Birmingham conference on Thursday morning with our friends from SANFIRE IA.
In the afternnon we're off to London for a F2F meet with a major investment bank on Friday AM to discuss a CEEDA assessment.
We're pleased with the interest about the CEEDA award, as many of you will know the CEEDA assessement and award is very closely linked with the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres (Energy Efficiency). (EUCoC)
Whilst the EU CoC is very much a voluntary code of conduct, the CEEDA award assesses how far organisations have actually implemented the various best practices in the EUCoC and therefore is a snapshot of how they are actually doing and not what they say they are going to do (The EUCoC has a three year window in which to implement as many of the best practices as you can).
We recently completed a CEEDA award for a major high street retailer and more are scheduled to be conducted over the coming months.
We cannot stress how useful the assessment and award will be to Data Centre owners and operators, an award will really show how committed an organisation is to energy efficiency and how this can be used as a marketing tool.
Further information can be found on our website and if you're considering requesting a CEEDA award please contact us first as we are able to conduct a PRE-CEEDA assessment that will give you a better idea of what you need to do and how you can attain a higher level of award.
Have a good week
