CATALYST project: Converting data centers in energy flexibility ecosystems
Green IT Amsterdam is collaborating with fellow European organizations in the exciting, new EU H2020 project, the CATALYST. The project constitutes the natural progression of the successfully completed project, GEYSER, which delivered a technological and business proof-of-concept to support data centers integration with their smart city ecosystem.
CATALYST aspires to accelerate the commercial utilization of both innovative energy efficiency solutions and on-site integration of renewable energy generation in data centers. To do so, the project will leverage on exploring the provision of energy flexibility services to “mutualized” energy grids, both power and heat, while contributing to increased resiliency and security of the power supply.
Schuberg Philis and Alliander, two active and innovative Dutch partners, are also participating to the project consortium along with partners from Italy, Greece, France, UK, Poland and Romania. Project partners are meeting in Rome, Italy on October 16 to officially kick start the project workings which are expected to conclude on Sep 2020. Details on the project’s vision and goals can be found here.
