"FLAP-D markets account for over 57% of data centre space are at saturations. With space being bought up for next five years, site selection teams face the challenge of this scarcity by broadening their scope and looking at emerging European markets such as Madrid and Milan.
This panel discussion will look at:
With the Paris Climate Agreement, countries of the world agreed to drastically reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. While every sector in every country must contribute to making its energy world climate-friendly and to reducing energy consumption, the global IT sector and its data centers are facing a dramatic increase in energy consumption.
Today, more than two million servers in German datacenters convert around 13 billion kWh of electricity into heat. Only 19 percent of datacenters use parts of their waste heat, mostly in their own buildings for heating and hot water. Approximately 8TWh of waste heat will be available by 2025.
We have a choice here: whether to waste this energy by releasing it into the environment or use this enormous potential by turning it into a sustainable energy source.
By recognizing datacenters not only as information powerhouses but as innovative contributors to global environmental objectives, we unlock a new era of energy efficiency and emissions reduction. By integrating heat utilization from datacenters into urban planning, cities can reduce reliance on fossil fuels, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and enhance their sustainability profile.
Regulation and standardisation define the frameworks for operational IT in non-congruent catalogues for sites and facilites. Investors and regulators alike were pushing Environmental, Social and Governance requirements in order to ensure proper and ethically balanced economics by juridical duties.
Diving - live on stage - into the complex topic ESG together with an expert in the field we will shed some light on this sustainability-related content: Nicole Bittlingmayer, Luther-lawfirm. In contrast Matthias Reidans, deep in the EN50600 points out the true focus of critical infrastructure stability, protecting consumer and inhabitans, enterprises and supplies from harm, losses and emergencies.
How to catch up now with these partially contradictory presets and how to cover the need for transparency in the typically non-disclosure Datacenter business is the takeaway of this panel & speech.
Data centres continue to innovate with more efficient designs, saving time, money and energy. With tools such as predictive new maintenance and immersion cooling systems, we will look at what the future holds for innovative data centre design. We will look at future technological advances and adoption, AI in the data centre and the implications of the ever-growing call for reliable autonomous systems.
