In addition to being part of a panel discussion about Energy Sourcing for the Future Data Centre, Sweden is in the final for the Datacloud Awards – fingers crossed.
Data Centers by Sweden in Panel discussion – “Energy Sourcing for the Future Data Center – Are Current Strategies Sustainable?”
Sustainability is increasingly a key factor when it comes to validating locations around the world. As large and increasingly scrutinised consumers of energy, data centers are under great pressure to improve their sustainability credentials. Energy sourcing is a natural link to this and is the focus of this year’s event in one of the panel discussions on the Critical Infrastructure Strategy theatre.
We will be discussing the following topics:
- Leading data center’s strategies for sustainable business – How can we learn from the bigger players?
- Industry’s environmental challenge and current – Can a regulation of the DC industry be relevant to address growing environmental issues? How and when?
- Examples of how data centers can become part of the circular economy etc.
In the panel: representatives from EUDCA, DigiPlex, Node Pole, Stockholm Dataparks, E.ON and safely moderated by CBRE.
