Data centers consume up to 1-2% of all energy worldwide, making a carefully executed environmental policy extremely important. Just like the CO₂ emissions, the energy consumption of a data center depends on various factors such as the technologies used, the location of the data center, and the way it is managed. For example, a data center in a cooler climate area will consume less energy for cooling than a data center in a warmer climate area.

Data centers can reduce their energy consumption in different ways. They can use energy-efficient servers and cooling systems, implement energy-saving habits, and use sustainable energy sources such as solar or wind power.

At LCL, we have been committed to reducing our energy consumption for a long time. Since the very beginning, we have been following the European Code of Conduct for Energy Efficiency in Data Centers. Therefore, we keep a close eye on our energy consumption, use 100% green energy, continue to develop our cooling system, and strive to improve every data center we build compared to the previous one.
