Greening Internet Data Centres: How to Unlock the Efficiency Potential (Webinar) – 12.07.2017

We are honoured to invite Alibaba, Danfoss and Huawei to share their unique insights and views on industry efforts towards data centre efficiency.

With the massive innovations brought by the “Internet of Things”, the world is becoming ever more connected. Increased internet activities involve tremendous amounts of data to be stored, and we are already witnessing mushrooming growth in data centres over the past decade.

According to the Independent, the amount of energy consumed by the world’s data centres amounts to 3 per cent of the global electricity supply and accounts for about 2 per cent of total greenhouse gas emissions. That gives it the same carbon footprint as the airline industry. Companies that are using inefficient data centres thus face a danger of large overspending on IT equipment, licences for operation and maintenance.

On 12th July from 10:30-12:00 CEST, the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency hosted a webinar to put data centres under the microscope and explore the opportunities and successful models for improving data centre performance through energy efficiency design and technologies.

During this 1.5 hour webinar, we aim to answer four questions that are critical for developing highly efficient and cost-saving data centres:

  • What are the most commonly used energy efficiency strategies in data centres and how can the balance between reliability, efficiency and cost effectiveness be achieved?
  • What are the latest standards and indicators for measuring data centre efficiency?
  • Cooling costs account for a significant portion of the energy consumption of a typical datacentre. What technologies and products are available in optimizing data centre cooling, and eliminating data centre power and cooling inefficiencies?
  • What are the global best practices on energy-efficient data centres?
