    Sector performs well against its third milestone target

Provisional results from the Climate Change Agreement (CCA) for Data Centres suggest that the sector has successfully met its efficiency target, the third of four milestones in the life of the scheme. 

Collectively, UK operators have performed so well that they have fulfilled the final scheme target two years ahead of schedule. However, at individual facility level the picture is more mixed, so the sector is not complacent and will be working harder than ever to build on these improvements in the final stage.  

The CCA ends in 2023 but the Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has provided no indication of the form that a successor might take. techUK would like to see a policy tool that drives activity to where it can be performed most efficiently. While the commercial sector is heavily scrutinised, we still need to tackle the lingering problem of distributed IT.
