This task aims to:
- Explore existing metrics for data centre efficiency.
- Identify which existing metric(s) would be most suited for use by policy makers, i.e. which metric(s) would be most suited to base policies on.
- Conduct a gap analysis of existing metrics for data centre efficiency, and make policy recommendations for the modification or development of energy metric(s) to fill any gaps and address any barriers (if this is indeed required).
