Introduction

SOE, who expertizes in mission critical facility / services, supports the policy and first launches a comprehensive program for Green Data Centre in Hong Kong.

The certified program provides a technical knowledge and “green theory” for engineers who are involved in creating sustainable and energy efficient data centre (E&M) / plants or exploiting the role of telecommunication in helping deliver green operation and business practices to other areas of organization such as Tendering & Procurement.
