Enabling Europe’s Transition – the Role of Green Clouds and sustainable data centres

Enabling Europe’s Transition – the Role of Green Clouds and sustainable data centres




As a global technology player, VMware welcomes the European Green Deal, including its 2050 climate neutrality goal, which promises unprecedented climate action and shows the EU’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions.


Cloud computing and green data centres have been identified as key focus areas for the EU’s twin transition to a green and digital economy. A first tangible initiative by the European Commission has been the publication of a study on “Energy-efficient Cloud Computing Technologies and Policies for an Eco-friendly Cloud Market”(1).


Complementarily, VMware with Aurora Energy Research has released a report on “Digital Transformation and a Net Zero Emissions Europe”, supplementing the European Commission's report and further developing concrete ideas for the greening of data centres and cloud.

Watch this 90-minute interactive conversation to learn more about the Aurora Energy report and how technology can contribute to the EU’s targets from the following panelists:
