GENiC is part of a cluster of several EU projects funded under the FP7 programme. These projects bring together in total over 50 global partners to develop new environmental efficiency metrics and methodologies to be used to measure common variables. compare results and collectively support standards development. A brief overview and link to project website of the other projects in the cluster is list below.

dc_cluster_logos_2_2_8133All4Green

All4Green aims to design new flexible contracts between ICT users and data centres, revolving around the use of Green-SLAs to enable new energy saving policies that can be tailored to different computing styles and can be used with all data centre monitoring and automation frameworks. More information can be found on their project website.

CoolEmAll

CoolEmAll aims to develop simulation, visualisation and analysis tools to enable data centre designers and operators to plan and run energy and resource-efficient facilities.

DC4Cities

The goal of DC4Cities is to let existing and new data centres become energy adaptive. DC4Cities Energy adaptive data centres policies will affect the energy consumption through the interaction with lower level subsystems which will need to become renewable energy adaptive as well, specifically. More information can be found on the project website.

Doflin

DOLFIN aims to significantly contribute towards improving the energy efficiency of Data Centres and stabilizing of Smart Grids, a holistic approach, across networks of Data Centres and Smart Grids. More information can be found on the project website.

Eureca

The goal of EURECA (Enabling information re-Use by linking clinical REsearch and Care) is to enable seamless, secure, scalable and consistent linkage of healthcare information residing in electronic health record (EHR) systems with information in clinical research information systems, such as clinical trials. More information can be found on the project website.

GEYSER

GEYSER project intends to develop a software tool to help Data Centres become energy prosumers in a Smart City context, enabling better integration of DCs as a Smart Grid participant, not only a consumer. More information can be found on the project website.

GreenDataNet

This project is aimed at reducing the environmental footprint of growing data traffic, while using data centres as Smart Grid nodes, through smart energy management at server, rack, data centre and DC network levels. GreenDataNet includes efficiency measures (IT, cooling and storage), and local RES integration and storage. More information can be found on the project website.

RenewIT

The main objective of the RenewIT project is to develop a simulation tool to evaluate the energy performance of different technical solution integrating RES in several European climate regions. More information can be found on the project website.
