The Sustainability and Environmental Association extended an invitation to EMAS-registered organizations and interested parties for an exchange of experiences at the High Performance Computer Center in Stuttgart (HLRS) on March, 17. The topic “Green IT” was on the agenda.

The operation of an efficient cooling system is of great importance for computer centers, as cooling processes are very energy-intensive. As County Operation Baden-Württemberg the HLRS is planning to introduce an energy management in accordance with ISO 50001 and an environmental management system in accordance with EMAS in order to lower the consumptions systematically and to improve the environmental performance, as Dr. Norbert Conrad explained in his introductory lecture.
