Seminar looks at data centre efficiency

UK: Fan manufacturer EBM-Papst is to hold a free seminar on data centre energy efficiency and design at its UK office in Chelmsford, Essex, at the end of next month.

EBM-Papst recognises data centres as key contributors to CO2 emissions and maintains that around 50% of all electrical energy consumed is for cooling. As a leader in the development of energy efficient fans, EBM-Papst says it can offer the most energy efficient solutions for data centre cooling.

Wednesday March 29 will see EBM-Papst welcome six key speakers – 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 09.30 in EBM-Papst’s Chelmsford Client Centre and ends at 13.20 with a buffet lunch and networking.
