The Energy Efficiency Directive: requirements come into focus

The European Commission (EC) continues to grapple with the challenges of implementing the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) reporting and metrics mandates. The publication of the Task B report Labelling and minimum performance standards schemes for data centres; and the Task C report EU repository for the reporting obligation of data centres on June 7, 2023 represent the next step on the implementation journey.

Data center operators need to monitor the evolution of the EC’s plans, recognizing that the final version will not be published until the end of 2023. The good news is that about 95% of the requirements have already been set out and the EC’s focus is now on collecting data to inform the future development and selection of efficiency metrics, minimum performance standards and a rating system.
