The EU Green Deal “needs digitalisation as an enabler for decarbonisation” in all sectors of the economy, including transport and energy, the European Commission says in a draft policy document, seen by EURACTIV.
Proposed new energy savings legislation for computers across the EU has been strengthened by a show of hands among national experts from each member state in a behind closed doors vote last week (7 March).
MEPs will vote tomorrow (28 February) on proposals for binding energy efficiency standards for computers and servers, but clean energy groups say that without more ambitious targets the whole exercise could be a "waste of time".
The need for fast, accurate and balanced information is always important. We value EURACTIV's good, independent journalism and support this initiative

EURACTIV plays a vital role in bringing Europe closer to its citizens. EURACTIV has long recognised that the story of Europe has to be told across the continent, and not just in Brussels. We need to support a truly European and informed debate.
