WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE INVOLVED FOR TWO UNMISSABLE DAYS THAT TOOK PLACE ON 7TH - 8TH JULY

 

In a current climate where the importance of data centres is paramount, the industry is facing multiple challenges. There is a need to address, discuss and debate crucial factors surrounding the ongoing hurdles of a data centre. The difficulties to reunite the industry together for the past year only heightens the importance of our responsibilities to propose a comprehensive world-class delivered programme at Data Centre World.

We hope you enjoyed our 2-day virtual event that took place on 7th - 8th July, where we looked at the data centre sector's influence on climate neutrality, net zero goal and sustainability of renewable energy storage at the largest digital gathering of data centre expertise in the world.

SPEAKERS & AGENDA




KEY THEMES AND TOPICS FOR 2021 INCLUDED:

Climate Neutrality

In a world with billions of devices and growing volumes of data, data centres must scale to meet the basic needs of society, but face increasing scrutiny on sustainability credentials. With the landmark Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact, 42 companies have committed to Climate neutrality by 2030. In this discussion, we addressed:

- The key pledges made & a roadmap to achieving this

- How the Post-Brexit UK will align with EU targets

- The role of Scope 3 and what more is needed to meet the goal of a climate-neutral Europe by 2050


Positioning the Data Centre Sector in the Net-Zero Debate

With COP26 on the horizon, Data Centres are in the spotlight to reduce carbon and tech companies are being called on to report their emissions. Taking this as a positive, it’s a chance to educate consumers on the carbon impact of internet-enabled activities like streaming and especially as industries such as gaming ramp up their cloud dependency. As cloud usage continues to rise, the reputation of the data centre is paramount. In this conversation, we considered the position of the data centre industry in the Net-Zero debate, where we should aim towards and how to get there.

Solving the Sustainability Puzzle of Renewable Energy Storage

Renewables adoption is no longer an afterthought in the data centre sector but front and centre of a thriving green agenda. But accessing green energy is only part of the problem. Powerful energy storage solutions will play a vital role in maximising the utility of renewable energy, but preserving green power while conserving the planet's resources is a delicate balance to strike. As hyperscalers again lead the pack in innovative energy storage solutions, we weighed up the pros and cons and ethical considerations of new technologies such as lithium-ion, blue sodium and fuel cells and place our bets on which will take charge in a data centre market that increasingly factors Sustainability into TCO.
