Carbon3IT Ltd 2015 Review

What a year!
Our financial accounts are in preparation but it looks like 2015 will have been our best ever year!
I am not surpised at this, considering the amount of travel I've done, which of course is related to work so, here a list of contries and work undertaken in 2015.
CEEDA assessments first!
In January I was in Mexico, visiting 3 data centres for KIO Networks, the results were 2 silver and a gold.
April, in the UK for a big 4 bank (unable to disclose who under a NDA). This was a Gold.
September saw 2 assessments, the first in India for Tata Communications Ltd, another Gold, and the second for EUMETSAT, also a GOLD.
November, Ireland, for a global IT provider, and a Silver.
December, in Gibraltar, and the award level has not been released as the report has yet to be audited.
We also conducted a remote review of a design and build project in Hong Kong which will be finalised sometime in Q2 2016.
This year, we will be in Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong twice, the US and Australia, a mixture of reassessments and new business, and thats just what in the pipeline now, hopefully, more assessments will be scheduled. CEEDA is fast becoming the global accreditation for Data Centre energy efficiency, please contact us directly if you want your data centre assessed amd we'll point you in the right direction.

On the EURECA project I visited the following countries, again a mixture of liasion work with international standards bodies and for formal workshop or project meetings:
Milan in April
Paris & Berlin in May
Monaco & Paris in June
Manachester & Amsterdam in July
Milan & Edinburgh in October 
Dublin & Riga in November
Scotland in December.
In 2016, we'll be in Scotland, Italy, Ireland, and The Netherlands on EURECA work.
Other trips (working for ourselves) included various locations in the UK and Norway (project awaiting confirmation)

We've also attended many ISO meetings, both in the UK and abroad and look forward to finalising some of the standards and improving the scope of others.

So, all in all a very busy year for us, and 2016 looks like it'll be similar to last year, but we could also have 3 new projects to deal with. (more information and details once the projects are confirmed.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has come into contact with us last year, clients, consultants, manufacturers, project partners and potential clients and wish you all the very best for 2016 and beyond.

Until next time....
