The exponential growth in demand for electricity to power data centre operations is slowly becoming an important global megatrend – in parallel to the process of digitalisation in the public and private sectors.

Developing technologies and practices to incentivise countries and businesses to develop sustainable digital infrastructure is therefore imperative.

Earth Wind & Power (EWP), a leading innovator in creating a sustainable bridge between excess energy and the exponentially growing demand for green computing power, is therefore delighted to announce that EWP Chairman, Olav Skalmeraas, and UNIDO Director General, Gerd Müller, signed a Joint Declaration on October 6 2022 to develop a framework for Resource Utilisation Efficiency (RUE) certification.

The RUE certification programme aims to help organisations meet tightening regulatory requirements, incentivising them to strive for enhanced resource utilisation efficiency and higher ESG performance standards, while providing much-needed green computing power. In this way, organisations that achieve certification can differentiate themselves from their peers through a rigorous and verifiable process.

Following the signing ceremony, representatives from EWP and UNIDO held an inaugural workshop to further refine the scope of the collaboration and discuss next steps.

Both parties share a positive market outlook for the demand for power for data storage and processing services, as well as a commitment to improving resource management and contributing positively to creating a world powered by renewable and sustainable energy.
