The exhibition is in its fifth year and combines both a dedicated exhibition and a adjacent multi-streamed conference, giving attendees access to the latest in information, best practice, products, services and solutions.
Minimisation of carbon emissions and ensuring environmental and financial stability is an important factor in the global data centre industry. Gas engine based captive power plants not only offer the ability to deliver energy security, they can also improve energy efficiency and environmental performance in data centres.
An example of a data centre we have recently worked on is a Citibank Data Centre, which was one of the first of its kind due to The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) backing its first project in the financial services sector. The investment was made by GIB’s fund manager Sustainable Development Capital (SDCL). The project will reduce Citi’s costs and its greenhouse gas emissions. It will make a meaningful contribution to reducing the data centre’s running costs. The CCP system will generate 71% of the electricity needed to power the data centre in Lewisham, London. It will also provide cooling for the servers housed in the data centre. Citi currently uses mains electricity from the national grid and relies on back-up diesel generators.
