Toward the self-driving data center
Panel: What is the data center industry doing about water conservation?
Reports warn that by 2025, a third of the world's population will face water shortages. The data center industry’s proposed self-regulated annual targets for a water conservation metric is a positive step to stop this, but is there a delta between talk and action? Has the pendulum swung too far? Any progress is difficult to gauge without usage transparency flowing down from operators through the supply chain.
This panel will track the industry’s level of maturity and explain how new and emerging ideas, designs, and technologies for cooling and powering facilities can help operators address the environmental impact of their whole water usage lifecycle to become water proficient, whether they control the entire value chain or not.
Roundtable: How are new designs and technologies helping operators achieve sustainable builds?
We invite you to join this roundtable discussion directly following this conference presentation to continue the conversation, get your questions answered, share your own insights and to find potential collaborators.
