Data centre energy efficiency and design seminar hosted by ebm-papst

A free-to-attend seminar looking at data centre energy efficiency and design is to be hosted by ebm-papst at its Client Centre in Chelmsford, Essex on March 29.

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 is 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.
As Europe’s largest fan manufacturer, ebm-papst is a leader in the development of energy efficient fans, and for many years the company has worked closely with its customers to provide the most energy efficient solutions for data centre cooling.

Six key speakers will address the seminar, discussing 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 their Chelmsford Client Centre and ends at 13.20pm with a buffet lunch and networking, where the debate is sure to continue.
This is the first in a series of seminars focusing on energy saving to be hosted by ebm-papst during 2017, keeping users up to date with all aspects of energy efficiency and new legislation relating to climate change and carbon emissions.
