Panel: Legislation: Are We Prepared?

Date: March 6, 2024, 2:50 p.m. — 3:30 p.m. GMT

Speaker: Andy Lawrence, Executive Director of Research, Uptime Institute

As governments around the world introduce new regulations and standards to address data privacy, security, and environmental concerns, it's crucial for data centre professionals to stay informed on compliance strategies, legal considerations, and the steps to take to ensure they are aligned with latest legislation. Don't miss this opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and navigate the changing regulatory environment successfully.


Session: Practical Sustainability Programme: What Good Looks Like?

Date: March 7, 2024, 12:25 p.m. — 12:50 p.m. GMT

Speakers: Ali Moinuddin, Managing Director, Europe, Uptime Institute; Max Smolaks, Research Analyst, Uptime Institute

Today many companies deploy sustainability programs that are focused on one or two specific aspects which significantly reduces the overall impact of the sustainability programs they deploy and their ability to meet their sustainability goals. There are a range of areas that must be addressed in an environmental sustainability strategy ranging from reducing energy consumption, buying renewable energy, tracking and reporting carbon emissions, managing water consumption, and equipment reuse and recycling. This session will provide guidance on what organizations should consider when building end-to-end sustainability strategies, and how they can ensure outcomes are more impactful.

Panel: How are data center operators driving sustainability?

Speaker: Eder Gallardo, Senior Consultant, Uptime Institute

Date: March 12, 2024, at 4:00 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. Brasilia Time

There is mounting global pressure for data center operators to reduce their impact on the environment, the sector used over 240 TWH last year. Latin America is home to several innovative operators at the forefront of data center sustainability while meeting the booming demand for capacity. This session will discuss:

  • How operators are measuring their emissions, including Scope 3
  • The strategies being employed to reduce emissions, from renew power purchase agreements to innovative designs
  • How operators are balancing the opposing demands of more capacity and sustainability and how this factors into their 3-5 year strategy

DCD>Debate: Moving the goalposts - is environmental compliance an impossible dream?

Speaker: Andy Lawrence, Executive Director of Research, Uptime Institute

Date: March 18, 2024, at 1:45 p.m. — 2:30 p.m. EDT

New York's LL97 law and other environmental standards demand meticulous reporting and sustainability adherence in data centers. But is this just not another demand to meet, alongside the countless others that have emerged over the years? Does local Government understand the complexity of Scope 1,2 and 3 emissions when they make such laws? How can we interpret and implement the latest mandates, and address challenges to ensure eco-friendly operations? This debate navigates the complexities of effective reporting methodologies, PUE metrics, and survey mechanisms asking: which, of any of these, makes sense in today’s market?


DCD>Debate: Will the data center supply chain ever be improved, or is this just a fantasy?

Speaker: Matt Stansberry, Vice President, North America, Uptime Institute

Date: March 18, 2024, 2:45 p.m. — 3:30 p.m. EDT

Time and time again, data center projects are faced with supply chain constraints, rising prices, and increased paperwork. Despite the best efforts of many, problems continue to plague the sector. Often a new solution, technology, or ‘buzzword’ arrives on the scene and promises to solve many problems, but which of these are effective: have any of them stuck?

So why is this? Are people afraid of the unknown: lacking effective data collection and focus? Has too much time been spent on ‘snowflake’ designs? Can any solution, such as value engineering, be the silver bullet that companies are desperate for? To put it another way: are ongoing supply chain issues simply a fact of data center life?


Major Panel: In a New York minute! How fast will the transition to Liquid Cooling now be?

Speaker: Jacqueline Davis, Research Analyst, Uptime Institute

Date: March 19, 2024, 10:30 a.m. — 11:30 a.m. EDT

Liquid cooling ascent and the quest for energy efficiency dominate the landscape and the debate may now have become 'if not how, but when?' But in this liquid cooling vs air cooling debate, do we forget about other alternatives? Cold plate cooling, and immersion cooling: these are exciting products that we should consider. But is that the problem? Are there too many technologies on the market that are causing our attention to be drawn away from adopting liquid cooling? Join this session to explore:

  • Cooling conundrums: Explore the evolution of cooling systems: rear-door, liquid, 2-phase immersion, D2C. Are there just too many and our attention is being split when it could be more focused?
  • Revolutionizing efficiency: Dive into AI's role in data center cooling, analyzing case studies and innovations like Electrolytic descaling for water efficiency.
  • Global regulatory landscape: Contrast European regulation and innovative approaches, pondering what the New World can learn from the Old.

Session: Measuring Sustainability: Understanding New Metrics and The Latest Regulations

Date: April 16, 2024, at 11:05 a.m. – 11:55 a.m. EDT

Speaker: Jay Paidipati, Vice President Sustainability Program Management, Uptime Institute

Sustainability is top of mind for everyone in the data center industry as a client need, regulatory risk, investor concern, and/or business opportunity. But how does a data center operator know they are looking at the right aspects of sustainability, if they are doing enough, and if they have the right programs in place?

Sustainability is more than just a carbon neutral or net-zero claim, and the industry needs to focus on all aspects of design and operations that materially impact a data center's environmental footprint across energy, water, waste, and emissions. In this session, we will review the latest regulations driving sustainability, the aspects of sustainability an operator needs to consider, and emerging best practices.

Takeaway

  • The latest on sustainability regulations
  • Which aspects of sustainability should be considered when creating a strategic plan for your digital infrastructure
  • Best practices of leading data center operators
