Join AEE NCC for our last monthly program for 2019!  We’ll be ringing in the holiday season with a talk on energy management in Data Centers followed by networking with fellow energy professionals.

It is said that over 80% of all Internet traffic on the planet goes through one data center or another in this region.  All of that data requires a lot of power to operate.  In addition, data center service providers are determined to avoid down time or data loss due to a power outage.  They are willing to invest very heavily in redundant systems and resiliency.  It is not that cost is no object, but rather that the requirements, even though they are costly, are considered to be absolutely worth it.  That being said, there are energy conservation measures that can and should be taken by data center operators.  Join us as we learn from one of the region’s experts regarding how energy can be managed in a data center setting.
