Digitalisation drives sustainability across all sectors; from online meetings replacing flights, and AI-driven insights that drive more efficient manufacturing, to a host of digital services that help citizens lead more sustainable lives.
But every digital process depends on a data centre. Data centres are the essential infrastructure of the digital economy and it is vital that they become climate neutral. Green data centres are core to delivering the Green Deal and the Digital Decade.
This online conference will explore the technical, regulatory and educational aspects required to deliver climate neutral data centres. It will outline progress made and discuss the challenges that lie ahead in delivering a sustainable digital economy.
The 90-minute event will open with a keynote presentation from from Claudia Canevari (Head of Unit, DG ENER, European Commission) and Manuel Mateo Goyet (Deputy Head of Unit, DG CNECT, European Commission) who will outline the importance of climate neutral data centres to Europe’s ambitions for a Digital Decade and the Green Deal.
There will then follow a panel debate with experts including hyperscale cloud providers, data centre operators and SMEs involved in educating and informing audiences of the potential of climate neutral digital services, as well as cities or other public sector bodies with a role in commissioning/regulating data centre provision.
The moderated panel will address the following topics:
Following the panel debate the floor will be open for a Q&A with the panellists.
