Experts will discuss data centre energy efficiency and design at a seminar, hosted by one of Europe’s largest fan manufacturers, ebm-papst. Data centres are a key contributor to CO2 emissions and with the continued demand for increased data processing power and information storage, the energy consumption and CO2 emissions resulting from data centres are set to grow. On average, around 50% of all electrical energy consumed in a data centre is a result of cooling, therefore this should be one of the main focuses when looking for efficiency savings.
Wednesday 29th March will see ebm-papst welcome six key speakers from industry experts, service providers and data centre operators to discuss current trends in data centre design and energy efficiency. Specialist guest speakers will provide the latest news and thinking on energy efficiency for data centres, looking at challenges facing data centre operators. Key ways of increasing these efficiency targets will be addressed through case studies as well as exploring what the future holds for data centre cooling.
A key part of the seminar will examine case studies where successful changes made by different types of data centre operators has delivered significant reductions in the PUE of their facilities.
The seminar is aimed at Data centre providers, facilities managers, M&E contractors, energy managers, end users, sustainability consultants and others involved in the data centre industry. The seminar will start at 9.30am in the company’s Chelmsford Client Centre and ends at 13.20pm with a buffet lunch and networking, where the debate is set to continue.
