Join ISO 30.134 standardization working group for energy efficient data centers

FDCF’s key activity is to fund ISO standardization work in the data center field

FDCF is active in development and supports global work in making data center area more global and interoperable. Without standardization the market is not open and without participation from Finland it is likely that Finland becomes a separate spot in data center field.

Current funding target – ISO30.134-X – Energy efficient data centers standard – PUE and ERE

Currently FDCF is actively supporting and participating the ISO 30.134 standardization work and has sent and sponsored writer and representative from Finland to the international meeting in Washington USA on November 2014. This working group aims in standardizing energy efficiency in data center area. Key KPIs to standardize are PUE (power usage effectiveness), REF (Renewable energy factor), ERE/REF (Energy reusage factor). FDCF’s board memebers have negotiated rights for Finland to write the very first draft of ERE/ERF standard.

Join the working group

We are actively seeking for editors and commentators for this national standardization body in energy efficient data centers field.Anyone who has interest in either following the work or participate as a specialist can join the work as a person (professional) or as a company representative. No compensation is paid for participation – everything is done on volunteer basis – but anyone can join. In case you want to join – contact either Pekka Järveläinen (chairman) or Saana Seppänen (SFS secretary) and join the next meeting in Helsinki either over the phone or face2face. You will also meet all the key data centers contacts at the same time and most of FDCF active members.
